 Alternative Walks

Alternative walks with a later start time will coincide with the "big walk". Information on these walks will be issued closer to the dates.

ClubWalks

Our walks are not graded. Everyone does the same walk therefore a good level of fitness is required. On the day the walk leader can refuse to take someone who is not properly equipped or whom they consider to be not fit enough. The leader also decides on the route to be taken and has the authority to decide to cancel, postpone, shorten or reroute if the conditions demand it. They may also decide to move the walk to the Saturday if they feel the weather will be more favourable.

Members are required to bring adequate gear to meet the adverse weather conditions and any emergencies that can occur in the mountain environment. The following is a list of recommended gear: - Suitable boots, raingear, maps, compass, whistle, torch, suitable clothing for the conditions (No Denims), gloves, hat, enough food and drink for the day and lastly a suitable rucksack with waterproof liner. NB No Dogs.  ATTENTION: Walks leaders and wall managers; please make alternative arrangements if unable to attend.

CAR POOLING
As parking is restricted in some of the areas that we visit we recommend car sharing to minimise the number of vehicles.
CLUB WALKS

Currently we hold two walks on the designated Sunday. The main walks are listed in the calendar. These generally start early and can be long and strenuous. The alternative walks start later and are easier. These are advertised on an ad hoc basis at the moment. information on both walks will be sent to members and will be published on our Facebook page on the Friday/Saturday preceding the walk.


XMAS PARTY

This year our Xmas party is being held in the Killarney Heights Hotel on the 11th. Dec. The cost is 35 per person. Meet in the hotel bar at 7.30pm far a pre dinner tipple.


26th. DEC.

This climb is for members only. We don't designate a leader for this climb as the number of people on the mountain would make it impossible to marshal. Members can make their own arrangements for the climb.

A downloadable version of the calendar is available here.
