Crag Profile: Gola - Island Wall

Details of the crag can be reviewed below. Editing links are present on all routes and inter-route notes

Directions: Steep clean 25m high wall between the western tip of the Maol murrinagh peninsula and Tor na mBallán. Three routes have been done here so far. Access is by abseil with hanging belays. Looking from the island (Not easily done!) two dips break 4m into the top of the wall. Two routes (no details as yet) start beneath the left (north) dip while 30 Million Toy Trucks starts below the right (south) dip.

A couple of routes were done at the left end of the wall at around the VS/HVS grade but no descriptions are available.

54 - Island Wall Traverse
E2 5c
No length recorded
G. Huxter, G. Kirk 26 August 97
Scramble to ledges 10m above sea level on the right of the wall (facing out). Traverse easily right at the same level until a vertical crack is reached (6m). Descend awkwardly for 1m then continue right to reach better holds. Climb the wall above trending rightwards to finish just left of a small corner.

Abseil to the middle of three rightward trending short ledges. (Hanging belay on top step). Climb the most direct line of weakness on good holds with good gear. A bit tiring.
