Exploratory weekend on Tory

Date: 5th 6th June 2004
Submitted by: Alan Tees
Nine routes were climbed on Saturday. Although there is a huge amount of rock on the North Coast and many spectacular features,many of the higher faces are vegetated and appear loose. There is however, plenty of good rock too!

The area climbed on is in the vicinity of probably the longest zawn, north and just West of West Town. The cliffs are lower, but still substantial, with the west side of the various inlets being generally slabby, with excellent rock, but often disappointingly easy, and the East side vertical/overhanging, again with mainly good rock. For details of routes climbed, look at the "New Climbs" section, but not yet!!
