Barnbawn – introduction for new members
July 19, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
Sheltered, sun-catching, quick-drying and low-lying, this crag has routes ranging from Diff. to HVS. All this and only 15 minutes from the road.
Note: recent alterations by Coillte to the road system within the forest have rendered the approach to the crag as detailed in the current guidebook obsolete. From the forest entrance walk to the t-junction and turn right onto a well gravelled broad track. Continue on the main track until it takes a 90′ left hand turn: at this point leave the main track and go straight ahead on a newly widened and gravelled track. After a short distance this track goes slightly downhill to a junction. Turn left here and the crag soon comes into view up on the right.
There is also a good topo of the approach on the route database of Climbing.ie
Parking is limited at the entrance to the forestry -meet at the recycle bins in Glenealy at 9am and car share
