Tuesday Evening Summertime Meets – Knocknagower

July 10, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

On Tuesday 10th July we will be heading to Knocknagower in Rocky Valley for the next of our Summertime Meets and our hosts for this outing is Derek Hendrick.

The crag was developed by Gerry Moss and other IMC members.

‘A small quartzite crag on the north side of Rocky Valley. Okay, like it says on the tin, the climbs are short, but so is the walk-in. Two minutes – and most of that is downhill! Plus, this little crag faces into the morning sun and is sheltered from most winds – a real suntrap in the mornings and a place to climb all year round. The climbs are all in the lowest grades and protection is variable. This little crag might suit if you are tied for time, or the weather is too dodgy to venture further afield, or if you have been driven off the mountain crags by bad weather.’

The climbing is graded from VD to VS making it particularly suitable for members learning to trad climb.

Club members only.
