Meet 10am Carrick Little Car Park

From Brian –

Hi Folks,
Can you please send me your phone number so I can make a Whatsapp group for the trip e.g., organise transport/car pooling/accommmodation options, my phone no. is 083 1615372.
Info:
UKC: ‘The extensive buttresses of Lower Cove are among the steepest and best in the Mournes, better and more continuous than they appear from a distance, with excellent routes at every grade from Severe to E8. Mostly single pitch (15-45m).’
IrishClimbingWiki: ‘Set about half way up the Annalong Valley these cliffs are among the steepest and best in the Mournes. The majority of the routes are south-facing, largely free of vegetation and will dry quickly. The crags have as a result proven to be popular and offer a large number of quality routes at a wide range of grades on invariably excellent rock with positive holds and generally very good to excellent protection.’

Accommodation very close to the crag is possible at Henry’s Cottage of the Belfast Climbing Club https://www.belfastclimbingclub.co.uk/henrys-cottage. If you intend to book for Sat night can you please notify me ASAP, I will need to book with BCC. Many thanks
