Considered by locals and those who make it across the Irish Sea to be the best cliff in the UK. Fairhead is as long as Stanage, but considerably taller.
The rock is excellent and columnar basalt and makes commanding lines.
The climbs start at VS and go to around E8. Below E3 these tend to follow pretty continuous crack lines, with 40-50m pitches being the norm, think double rack of cams and good jamming skills. The gear is generally supposed to be excellent.
The best way to travel would be to car share and get overnight ferries from Liverpool to Belfast. It's fair to point out that this isn't a cheap option and is probably around £100 each (depending on how many to a car and whether you take a cabin). Shorter, cheaper crossings go from Holyhead to Dublin.
Embarrassingly, it's probably cheapest to fly. For accommodation we have two options, very basic camping walking distance from the crag or a more luxurious campsite with showers a short distance away.
