Weekly Rock climbing sessions will take place at Rocklands crag on Thursday evenings, weather permitting. Meet at the top of Mulgannon road near Electric Ireland sub station at 5.30. If arriving later and not sure how to get to crag phone Paul or Colette. Small cost towards gear replacement. Happy climbing!
Superb Winter Mountaineering conditions have taken a grip on the Wicklow mountains in recent weeks. Wicklow Mountain Rescue teams have been advising against going high in the hills without Winter skills and equipment.
On Easter Monday crampons and ice axe were essential pieces of kit in order to get to the summit of Lugnaquilla safely even by normal, standard walking routes. The upper sections of the mountain are covered in ice, snow thawed and refrozen.
Terrific opportunities for anyone to gain further Winter skill experience.
Winter conditions are set to continue for most of this week.
