Ben and Derek’s Carrauntoohil Multipitch Weekend
7 July 2017 @ 08:00 - 9 July 2017 @ 17:00
This year we will be multi pitching in Carrauntoohil (Géarán Tuathail (“Tuathal’s fang”))
The plan is to go down and stay in and around Carrauntoohil either tents or hostel at Croanins yard http://croninsyard.com/ and to do the routes in and around Carrauntoohil but also the surrounding peaks have a lot to offer both climbing and hiking.
There’s the Howling ridge, which was one of the best days of my life: Easy and although ultra exposed still a roped scramble. More exotic fare on offer such as primroses. See routes below.
For those that fancy it the sat night we can maybe Bivvy on the mountain or if bold take in a couple of routes on surrounding peaks
Howling ridge Howling Ridge VD (300 metres)
Primroses HVS 4c (300 metres)
