Route Description:
This climbs the centre of the next wall. Start at the middle of the ledge, which runs along the base of the wall. Good VS climbing with a sustained start up some jamming cracks to a shallow fluted groove splitting an overlap at 6m. Easier climbing up the groove in the middle of the face to finish.

Gola, Co. Donegal - Looks like Frankie McCloskey at the top. The route might be Ex Eagle VS 4c (but a bit tough at the grade).

Good comments, keep them coming. Gola's a big job for the guide and we need as many comments on lesser-known lines.

Big Trip is good at VS and worthy of a star.

Seconded the line being climbed in the picture(Ex Eagle) on sunday, a good VS line with a good crux move about half way up. I led the VS line a couple of meters to the right(big Trip), again a good route but slightly easier. both lines had good protection
