When my friends and family asked "What was the highlight of Ireland?" my instinctual answer is "Unique Ascent!" without hesitation. Iain's passion for adventure and off the beaten path exploration made for a brilliant, memorable, fun, fabulous, inexplicably beautiful, breathtaking adventure. Iain is not only uber-prepared and ultra-skilled as a guide but he's also a friendly, kind, hilarious soul who... More

Climbing Tor na Dhumhchna Sea Stack at Glasha with Iain was an unforgettable experience. I've never climbed before and didn't quite know what to expect but I must say, it was way beyond any expectations!!! Iain is an excellent and a very professional guide who makes sure you have the best experience possible. He's very reassuring and makes you feel... More

Unique Ascent….Its all in the name! Two days of pure adrenaline with an extremely cool guy Iain. Felt completely at ease on the sea stacks and the rock cliffs at Cruit island in the safe hands of Iain. Make sure to ask about the 'Greedy Pig Groove' move/climb on Cruit Island….bound to make you laugh bundles. Aswell as a passionate... More

Awesome day - Iain's a fantastic guide, and the setting and climbing are absolutely stunning! Beyond Iain's climbing expertise, he's just really fun and has a great sense of adventure. We spent the morning on a sea cliff and the afternoon on a sea stack he paddled us out to, trying about 5 lines on the sea stack. He's generously... More

We contacted Iain because we'd read about his first ascent of Cnoc na Mara in the Rock Climbing Ireland book and really fancied having a go ourselves. On the day, Iain advised us that it wasn't a good idea due to the sea conditions, but he provided us with a brilliant alternative, climbing on Berg stack instead. We loved the... More

I continue to be blown away by Iain Miller and what he does. As the founder of an awareness campaign called Fighting Fit For Ewings's , I regularly participate in physical challenges. Two of these were organised by Iain. The first was a day of rock climbing and abseiling on Cruit Island and the second was an abseil off Fanad... More

I heard about Iain Miller and Unique Ascent through a work colleague and I was invited to go rock climbing on Crit Island in Donegal. I tried not to think too much about this challenge beforehand especially given that I have been somewhat afraid of heights for as long back as I can remember. However I found this to be... More

I booked Iain to take my 6yr old son and 3 nephews age; 8,11 and 13 rock climbing. Quite a varied age group but this was well accommodated by Iain who after an initial climb assessed their individual ability and facilitated climbs that suited them all. Iain put them at ease right from the start and built a rapport quickly... More

Iain Miller is a fantastic guy who makes the most difficult of challenges seem so easy. He caters for all abilities and the fact he got me abseiling and climbing was a feat in itself. Still buzzing from the experience 4 days later and can strongly recommend unique ascent for all abilities. What a great way to see our beautiful... More
