Conditions could not have been more pleasant in Dalkey Quarry last night as a huge crop of new members embarked on new adventures, with some climbing outdoors for the very first time. It was so pleasant to experience a gorgeous Spring evening in the Quarry after the wash-out last Sunday. The paths into some of the routes were muddy but the rock itself was in perfect condition.
After such a prolonged winter, this presented the first day for many people. So keen were some climbers that you could see the winkle of head torches as people finished off their initial tick-lists for the year.
