Mournes Lower Cove
May 8, 2021
1 day meet for Lower Cove. Lower Cove is a great crag with routes going from Diff to E5, many of them starred. Routes are mostly single pitch but there are 2 and 3 pitch routes, some at very amenable grades. The climbing at Lower Cove is excellent and this would be a great introduction to the Mournes for those who haven’t been there before.
Lower Cove on the Irish Climbing Wiki is here or you can buy a guide book from Mountaineering Ireland.
We’ll meet at one of the car parks at Carrick Little, time to be decided closer to the date, and walk in from there. The walk takes about an hour. For parking there is a public car park that fills up early in the morning. A couple of the cafes will let you park as well for 2 or 3 pounds, so bring some sterling coins if you have them. The cafes also do a nice breakfast.
