Donegal Rock Climbing Guidebook

 In the next few weeks the future Donegal rock climbing guidebook will be published, it's format will be an I-phone app and it is being published/hosted by and Mountaineering Ireland.
 Due to the vast volume of rock, routes and climbing locations in Co. Donegal, the guide is a select guide to all the best areas, islands, crags and routes.
 The guide contains just over 1000 of the best recorded rock climbs in the Donegal and all the climbs are featured on photo topos. All 200+ photo topos were taken from the best angles and weather conditions to allow the user to very easily identify their chosen routes. To assist in the locating of individual crags a series of crag topos are used where there is a group of crags in a specific small area.

Gola Island Crag Guide

Belshade Crag Guide

Malinbeg crag Guide

 The guide uses your phones in built GPS to allow the user to locate all the individual crags, islands, ferries, car parking, recommended camping spots and as much helpful information as I could think of as the entire guide is designed for the user/climber who has never before visited the county. 
 The actual crag topos are fully interactive and all routes are clickable links to highlight the line and display the route descriptions.

 In addition to the select guide I have produced a series of 21 definitive guides to the entire county, each is a sectional guide and is in PDF format. These definitive guides are all linked into the home pages of each chapter in the app and are available as free downloads from
