 Living of the northern outer edge of the hinterland that is the Slievetooey Massif in south west Donegal, Gull Island at 90 metres and is joined to mainland Donegal by a raised shingle beach bar. .

The Logistics of an Ascent of Gull Island

      1:   Gull Island lives at the base of the north face of the Slievetooey sea cliff, it is one of the most remote places on mainland Ireland.
      2:   The grassy approach slope is quite steep to the raised shingle storm beach, which has allowed non-nautical access at all tide states.
      3:   The rock on the stack is good BUT your situation causes everything to appear a wee bit more atmospheric than it actually is.
      4:   The ropework on the stack requires a wee bit of thought as it is not conventional esp, as always ensure your descent by inspecting and if needed rerigging the abseil belays as you climb the route.
      5:   60 metre half ropes are best, as the last abseil is 45m to the ground.
      6:    The summit is the size of a football field and is a bit of a mindblower.
