Trip highlight from Fairhead, N Ireland.

11th Jun 2008

A contender for the best trad cliff in the UK, it's certainly up high on the list. I had a fantastic week there which was helped substantially by glorious blue skies and copious amounts of sunshine. The real highlight for me was onsighting Littlejohn's E6 'Above and Beyond'. Certainly not the hardest E6 I've ever done but tricky route finding, fiddly gear and a few tricky moves in places, totally amazing route in a fantastic position.

I am pleased with this though as I've hardly done any trad climbing for months and months and it was nice to feel my head getting back into gear.
