The Cuas Croom Crag is situated almost 2km north of the car park at Cooncrome Harbour in Co. Kerry at approx.V443832. Cooncrome Harbour is located 3km NW of Caherciveen Bridge. This sea Crag sits to the west of the inlet called Coosafadda and it faces in a SW direction. A short scramble decent is required to reach the Crag. There are five routes on this single clean slab of old red sandstone, all of which are 10m in height. In big seas, the base platform of the routes is unsafe due to wash. The Crag is situated on commonage and access is no major issue, as long responsibility is shown.
