  BEARNAGH SLABS Updated 2/08/07

Endgame 10m E2/3 6a
I. Rea, D. Crawley 17/5/99
30m L of Kittyhawk is a steep slab of rock at a gap. Start 1m right of the L edge. Climb very tenuous layback / layoff flake with a hard switch R to a thin seam / flake just below the top.

Californication 10m VS 4c
D. Crawley, I. Rea 17/5/99
The direct flake and crack just to the right of the above route.

Work Party (1st winter ascent) IV/5
I. Rea, K. O?Hara Christmas 1999
Excellent and sustained mixed pitch, which is in the shade and may be in condition reasonably often.

Suggested upgradings:

Shadowline ? from HVS 5b to E1 5b
Voss ? from HVS 5b to E1 5b

Vulgar Display of Power E3/E4 6b
Sam Gordon, Ricky Bell, Simon Fell. 19/4/07
This route is situated at the top of the trassey track at the col between Bernagh and Commedagh; the only bit of climbable rock. This route is climbed on the right side of a single arete. Easier for the tall, fun & super safe.
