Great line with good protection.

Sorry too many typos (it is Paddys day :-)Had a look at Torrins and Stelfoxs Rock Climbing in Ireland Guide of Ireland 1984 and that gives a lenght of 8m - It seems that rockclimbs were not immune to the unstatainable growth of the Celtic Tiger but now that the IMF have come in I think the climb will settle down to a more realistic level;->

Grade seems settled then. How many e-mails to settle the lentgh?

That's a Donegal tradition Hugh. Measure routes the same way you measure salmon... and then add a bit.

HS 4b alright but who measured some of these climbs - this is hardly 10m in height.

You're the man Chris. If you say HS 4b then I'll go along with that.

HS 4b bang on for this route

Used to be VS 4b. About right at that, but some people who are good at bridging find it easy.

Well here's the Malin Beg route that I reckoned was a sandbag. I couldn't get anyone to back me up though. Great route - just a tad harder than the grade suggests.
