Remarkably Warm Bay Point

6 of us met for coffee at Cafe Tees, in Culdaff, with snow still lying on the hills and mist in the air. Alan, Geoff, Andy, Paul, Damien and myself were going to visit Warm Bay, ostensibly to explore but there was quite a lot of climbing gear in evidevidence. Despite it being my idea to go, I was the one who drove past the parking spot but found it second time round. Soon we were sauntering across the fields, descending the steep spur and sitting below the crag.
It was a great little sun trap, sheltered from the wind and the crag was dry.
Paul and I explored while the others set up a top rope and looked suspiciously as if they planned to use it! Indeed they did. Despite it seeming as if it was April, the rock was on the cool side and soon there were murmurings about finishing up Mittalegi Blues.
Alan and Damien set off to the start. Geoff and Andy looked doubtful and took their time. Paul and I were resolutely ground based. It started to sleet. Everyone decided Paul and I had a point.
The first Donegal rock climbing of the year?

  1. Yes, Warm Bay Point lives up to its name again. Still one of my favourite crags. New fence helps to guide you into the descent path too……
