Description 

This area has the highest concentration of quality climbs at Glenmeal with everything from beginner climbs to a V9. The West Side is comprised of a stand alone boulder as well as a cliff band 12-15 feet in height.

Getting There 

From the West Side parking lot, take the trail heading south parallel to the road in the field. This trail quickly turns right at a cairn towards the obvious cliff band. The approach is 2-3 minutes from the parking area.
