Dún Séanna Head and Conor Pass

Spend a few days in Dingle, the goal was to check out Dún Séanna. The weather wasn’t ideal with showers, strong wind and massive swell. We climbed a few routes but not the Needle so will have to go back for that.

It’s a really nice crag, the Needle looks brilliant – and scary, and the other routes are long and direct.

One afternoon we nipped up to Conor Pass and checked out a nice boulder there. It’s mentioned in the guide but you can see it clearly on Google Streetview. There is a classic slopey lip traverse on the front of the boulder. Perfect sandstone. We did it from the middle to the end at around 6a but the really challenge is the full left to right traverse, about 18 feet long and it looks much harder at the start. There are lots of outcrops near the road which would offer lots of nice problems in the 4/5 bracket.
