Tuesday Evening Summertime Meets – Portrane
July 16, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
For this Tuesday’s meet we will be bouldering at Portrane. Our host for this outing is to be confirmed. All of the necessary details are listed below.
Portrane is easy to get to (2 mins from the car), in a stunning location looking across Dublin bay and has problems of all grades (4+ to 8a).
Description from the Irish bouldering guide:
“The bouldering in Portrane is steep – on mini-cliffs and narrow alleys – with powerful moves between relatively low-friction, sea-polished slopers and edges. It’s a change from the technical style of Wicklow granite and the weather tends to be better. The best time to go is about two hours before low tide, as most of the problems have been out of the water for a few hours. A cloth is very handy to clean sand off your shoes.”
Low tide is at 6pm on the 16th so timing could not be better.
Plan is to meet at the car park at 6pm and stroll down to ground zero for a start. From there we can explore the other coves as we go.
Further info will be available on the forum closer to the date.
The bouldering is suitable for all levels and new members are particularly welcome.
