And we have two events coming up this month. The first is a bouldering day at Meelmore Lodge in the Mournes on Saturday the 17th of October, weather and covid dependant. Then on the 25th of October, we are planning a hike up Slieve Donard. Make sure you’re a part of the Facebook Group as that is where things are shared and you can sign up for events!
Hey everyone! I hope you are all well and staying safe during this strange new term at uni! As you know the club has plans in the works for some socially distanced hikes in the Mournes and we are excited to bring you these possible dates: Sunday 25th October Sunday 15th November Sunday 6th December
These dates are constantly being reviewed with covid and weather in mind, but keep your eyes out on our social media for more information closer to the time! These hikes will be beginner friendly so it would be lovely to see new members there! As a heads up- the club will not be arranging transport. We’ll give more information about hike locations closer to the time so you can plan how to get there safely.
Some kit to consider getting before the hikes (for your safety) :-Waterproof layer (coat required, trousers recommend) -Comfortable sturdy shoes (preferably hiking boots/shoes) -Personal medication/first aid kit -Water bottle + snacks
In a vague attempt to create a kind of basic online reference I am going to start trying to write a (small) series of articles on here, explaining different aspects of climbing and how you can use them to improve. Hopefully. I mean, that’s the plan. Bear with me if it’s just drivel. I’m not a professional, and there’s a reason I didn’t do an English A-level…
Anyway, I thought we’d start off with how you move when climbing.
