Cork Institute of Technology Mountaineering Club had a somewhat chilly but sunny day for their Rock Climbing skills Course on Saturday.They spent a great and highly informative day on the wonderful crag of “Bothán” going through everything from knots to anchors and lots of subjects in between. Everyone went away from the day with plenty to ponder and  practice and hopefully lots to improve their own personal climbing over the months and years ahead!!!  

Stunning weather ALL weekend for  “The Gap of Dunloe Climbing  meet” – surprisingly not a huge turnout compared to last year by all accounts, but those who did make the effort were well rewarded with some great big ( and small !!!) routes climbed and a sun tan to boot!!!

Whilst training Sunday on Bothán with the MRT the view over towards The Reeks was absolutely superb…Happy to be “hangin’ out” (pun intended) but sorry not to be up on the tops!!!
