V Stack, Tory Island

 To the right of the tower sits V stack an excellent twin summited 40m sea stack. 

 Access is as for the Centre stacks to arrive at the viewpoint overlooking the tower. An abseil is required from here to access the sea level platforms facing the land ward face of the stack. (No insitu abseil anchors on the cliff tops 2011) From the sea level platforms it is a short sea passage to the base of the land ward face and a large recess at the base of the V.

 Both summits have been climbed from the same initial pitch up the steep corner below the V. This takes you to a huge ledge with a airy window looking out to sea between the summits. The left summit, the slightly higher one is climbed about Severe up a series of large ledges to a final grot struggle up a loose chimney to it's flat topped summit. The slightly lower right summit is climbed direct from this platform following a  deep crack up the wall above to the small summit spire.
