ROCK CLIMBING & ABSEILING

ALL IN DONEGAL WITH UNIQUE ASCENT

The county of Donegal contains more climbable rock than the rest of Ireland boasting two major Irish mountain ranges, over thousand kilometers of coastline, one hundred sea stacks and many diverse climbing locations from the mudstone roofs at Muckross in the South West of the county to Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point. Donegal currently plays host a lifetimes worth of world class rock climbing in some of the most beautiful and unsolid places in Ireland. The scope for further exploration and the opportunity to discover unclimbed rock is unlimited, as there is an unexplored adventure waiting through every mountain pass and around every remote headland.

At Unique Ascent since 2005 we have been exploring the better and lesser known climbing locations throughout the county and have developed and recorded over 500 new routes in all areas of Donegal. We have explored and developed the Island of Cruit, recording over 300 rock climbs making Cruit Island the most developed rock climbing location in Ireland. We have played on the previously unclimbed Sea Stacks creating some of the most adventurous and atmospheric rock climbs in the country.

What we offer is the opportunity for people of all abilities to visit and climb in places of outstanding natural beauty where solitude and a truly great outdoor experience is guaranteed. We offer a full range of experiences, courses and holidays with the goal of maximizing your potential and knowledge by building on your previous experience and knowledge. Our goal with every client is to educate, instruct and guide you to allow you to reach, achieve and fulfil all your rock climbing ambitions.    

Abseiling (rappelling) is a method of using a rope to descent a slope by a controlled descent down the slope using the rope and a friction device. This technique is used when a cliff or slope is too steep and dangerous to descend without a rope for protection. Abseiling is also used in industry as a method access otherwise difficult to reach areas such as the underside of bridges for various industrial applications like maintenance, inspection and welding. Rescue teams use abseiling as a way to access injured or stranded victims in remote lonely or otherwise dangerous locations.

At Unique Ascent we will rig an abseil off any building, cliff or structure for you and your group to abseil from. We are only limited to your imagination as to where you would like to abseil from and of course, gaining permission from the owner of the building or structure.
