Geocache Description:

The mother of all sea ridges.

The Sturrall Headland is one of the most outstanding sea cliff features in Ireland it is a true monster of a headland sitting isolated and far from the real world. It sits equidistant between Glencolmcille Village to the South and the An Port road end to the North. The ridge is approx 800m long and 200m at it's highest point.

This cache is most defo not for children or the unwary. A suitable level of mountaineering guile and confidence is required to gain and exit the summit safely. It is strongly recommended that you are knowledgeable in the use of single dynamic mountaineering rope and carry at least 2 X 2.40m slings, 2 X HMS karabiners and personnal climbing equipment.  The easiest route to the summit is by following the sheep track across the north face of the Sturrall to the sea ward tip. From here it is an exposed scramble up the last 60 meters of the ridge to the summit with the last 10 meters onto the summit being the trickiest section.

The View from the Sturrall Headland Summit

 The view from the summit is unlike any other location in Ireland.

 The cache is a medium box with pencil, notepad and sharpener.
