Preliminary route choices for Dalkey Quarry

Here are the routes I have included from Dalkey Quarry. Some many find the number of routes a bit disproportionate but remember the routes are pretty short and close together in the Quarry so it’s possible to get quite a lot done in a short time and also that it’s easy to get quite a few routes on each page.

D

Tower Ridge

VD

Paradise Lost
Eliminate A

S

Giant’s Staircase
Yorkshire Pudding

HS

Levithation
F Route

VS

Helios
Hyperion
Pilaster
Mahjonng
E-route
Jameson 10
Tramp
Streetfighter

HVS

In Absentia
Thrust
Graham Cracks
Scavenger- Exertion

Superette
Stereo-tentacles

E1

Central Buttress

E2

Tower Ridge Direct

The Ghost
The Shield

E4

Port Cullis

E5

The Prisoner
Solitary Confinement

Obviously I haven’t done any of the harder route and have based my choices on the guide but I will talk to some climbers more experienced at the grade to see what they think. Looking at the grade profile I could probably do with one or two more E1? Any suggestions Cell Block H looks great?

I had considered adding the two cracks Smouldering Stirrips and Blazing Saddles but decided against?

Let the “but what about?”s begin
