Return to ROCKLANDS for climbing

Climbing sessions will take place for the next few Thurs evenings at Rocklands. A few sections were not affected very much by the recent fire. It is likely that Sep 19th may be the last session for the season as daylight is quickly fading in the evenings. If you haven’t given it a ‘go’ yet, come along and try it out!


Wexford female climbers at Women with Altitude event in Dalkey

Some club members attended the WWA climbing meet in Dalkey on Sat Aug 10th. The Women with Altitude initiative is a drive beginning from Sports Council research showing a serious drop off of Women in sport into adult years. The aim is to encourage more women in sport to develop their skills and develop greater independence and confidence.
Watch out, on the Mountaineering Ireland website, for further events during the year. The annual week end event has grown in success in the last few years and early booking will be essential for the event in May next year in Leenane. Check out the Women with Altitude Facebook page for up to the minute news.
