Will Gadd, alongside local climber and guide, Iain Miller, conquer previously unclimbed sea stacks on the Irish Coast, the tallest of which is known as Chaos Stacks. The County Donegal is home to some spectacular climbs and natural wonders created by the ebb and flow of ocean and time on the Irish coastline.
Ireland’s complex history and political strife has kept its climbable terrain out of the mainstream, and as such, there’s still a huge amount of cliffs and climbables that have yet to be explored. The rock is granite, perfect at the bottom due to the attention from the ocean and becoming more crumbly near the top. Of course, it’s not always smooth sailing near the bottom, even 100 metres up, you have to worry about swells taking you away.
