NI Wild Climbing in Tollymore?
« on: April 05, 2012 »

Hi all...

It looks like Ni Wild will at some stage be going outside climbing with Rock & Ride...  but for some, to go staight outside to climb can be a little daunting.  This is just my thought... there are enough of us on the forum that have enough experience to belay, lead etc.. would anyone be interested in taking a Sunday to assist/gain experience at the Hot rock in Tollymore as a prelude to going outside? Its a brilliant opportunity to meet before venturing outside, and for some its (nearly) on our doorstep.

I know the majority will rule on the date if anyone is interested in doing this, but the only date im not available is Sunday 6th May.

LandyLiam has suggested that we may also tie climbing with doing a little archery or a wee hike up Lukes mountain?
Id be happy to spend the day at the wall though

I have 3 spare harnesses (and may be able to lay my hands on more) so that should save some people an extra fiver, you can get away with ordinary trainers and i have a few belay devices too. I'm working next week but sundays usually suit me.

Well, I'm free pretty much all of next week apart from Saturday (IIRC).  So should be free to go whenever. 

Might take a quick go for £15 to see how I fare outside of the eyes of NIWild.   ;D

Not unless something comes up between now and then, then yes.  What time at though?
