Mini Tour of the North

June 24, 2016 @ 8:00 am - June 26, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

June 24th – 26th mini tour of the North
This is a long weekend camping meet with option of extending into Monday 27th if able.
Plan is to do Fairhead Friday and on Saturday either Donegal or more Fairhead with a day in Donegal / the Mournes on Sunday.
Camping at Fairhead on Sean McBride’s land.
Routes at the easier end of the scale at Fairhead include various single pitch on the Prow. (note: easier at Fair Head means VS+ or probably HVS)
and the magnificent multi-pitch Roaring Meg, though the first pitch is 5a the rest is straightforward and a fantastic introduction to multi-pitch.

Also lots of bouldering so worth bringing pads – see the July Fairhead meet description for more info.

Donegal would be based in the Malin Beg area see guide here. Expect to camp near Duan Head as described in the guide.

The Mournes there are loads of options depending on how much walking you want to do! Expect Lower Cove and Binnian Tors will be high on the list.

Camping at Meelmore or Bloody Bridge.
