Climbing An Bhuideal
by IainMiller  15 Dec 2017
An Bhuideal (The Bottle) is an iconic 50 metre high twin headed sea stack living 300 meters out to sea at the base of 250 meter high sea cliffs. Its remote location and close proximity to the skerrie chain immediately to the north of it enures it is well guarded from any approach by visitors. More information on An Bhuideal, CLICK HERE. It's impressive, if slightly scary location and the quality of its climbing means it provides one of the most rewarding and adventurous days out rock climbing in Ireland. It is easily an equal to the mighty Old man of Stoer off the west coast of Scotland.

In summary to climb An Bhuideal, drive the 22 kilometre c class laneway from Ardara to the road end at An Port, as for Cnoc na Mara and Tormore Island to the gateway to Ireland's last great wilderness. From here on foot, follow the clifftop path for approx a kilometre to a very steep and slightly loose ridge descent and a final short abseil to sea level and a very lonely storm beach. From the beach it is a 300 meter sea passage to the base of the stack. All the routes on the stack are climbed in one to three pitches with summit block abseil return to sea level abseils
