Tuesday Summertime Meets – Barnbawn
June 26, 2018 @ 5:30 am - 10:00 pm
We will be heading to Barnbawn for this Tuesday’s IMC summertime meet and Jane Irvine is our host for the outing. All the necessary details are listed below.
Sheltered, sun-catching, quick-drying and low-lying, this crag has routes ranging from Diff. to E1. All this and only 15 minutes from the road.
To get to the crag, follow the R752 from Rathnew through the village of Glenealy, then turn right (north-west) immediately before the railway bridge. Take the next turn to the left, about 2km up the road, and left again at the T-junction. About 500 metres up the road there is a forest entrance on the right where parking is possible. The approach from Roundwood is via Tomriland Cross, Moneystown and Garryduff Cross. Note: recent alterations by Coillte to the road system within the forest have rendered the approach to the crag as detailed in the current guidebook obsolete. From the forest entrance walk to the t-junction and turn right onto a well gravelled broad track. Continue on the main track until it takes a 90′ left hand turn: at this point leave the main track and go straight ahead on a newly widened and gravelled track. After a short distance this track goes slightly downhill to a junction. Turn left here and the crag soon comes into view up on the right.
There are three sections to the crag, Holly Tree Slabs on the left, Upper Buttress in the middle and Lower Buttress on the right. There is an easy descent route to the left of Holly Tree Slabs.
