Iain Miller is a rock climber, Mountain Instructor, and guidebook author living, working, and playing on the sea cliffs, sea stacks, mountain ranges, and uninhabited islands of County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. He has spent the last 20 years seeking and finding unclimbed rock and nautical summits in both the Orkney Islands in Scotland and in County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. He has climbed over 50 previously unclimbed sea stacks including Tormore Island, Ireland's highest sea stack, and Cnoc na Mara, perhaps the best sea stack rock climb on earth. His company, Unique Ascent, provides both a rock-climbing training and guiding service on this Western Edge of Europe.
Living the dream: Transforming a passion into a business
In an average year, I'll be out climbing between 250 and 300 days. Out of these 300 days, I only consider three or four to be work. The rest of the time, I'm simply having as much fun as is humanly possible doing what I love.
