A significant number of club members headed SW for the June Bank holiday wk end. Carrauntouhill was on the agenda especially for first timers. After a damp start the peaks cleared to allow fantastic views from the top. Two different routes were used, one via the Heavenly Gates and the other via Stumpa ridge and Beenkeeragh.
Day 2 the route was the circuit of Coomasaharn Lough near Glenbeigh. The views back to the Reeks allow the group to see some of their route from the day before.
We had climbing representatives in the Gap of Dunloe both days, leading HS to E1 grades.
Day 3 the weather was not quite as clear but a small ‘hardy’ group did the Pilgrim route up Knocknadobar and across the top to Kells Bay.
Kells Bay was a beautiful location and the rented houses there were a huge success.
