Climbing Rockall

Here’s some very shaky footage of Kevin “Geo” O'Callaghan climbing Rockall and dragging Larry “OK, I’ll row” Hynes up after him. This was in June 2005, on a cruise to Scotland on Jamie and Mary Young’s 50’ Killary Flyer. On board were Jamie Young, Brend├ín O Callarain, Pauline Jordan and the two lads. We learned a couple of things up there: 1. That much guano really stinks. 2. There is a small pointy rock right beside Rockall that could do very nasty things to a yacht.
