Description: Golden granite bouldering on the beach. A magical location to hang out and climb on some fantastic boulder problems alongside young climbers and parents from various youth climbing clubs.  Hosted by the Hanging Rockers Youth Climbing Club and Mountaineering Ireland.  

Please bring your normal bouldering kit - rock climbing shoes and a chalk bag.  Crash mats will be provided by Mountaineering Ireland and the Hanging Rockers Youth Climbing Club - but if you have access to a crash pad/s please bring them along.

There will be a group briefing provided by a Mountaineering Ireland qualified rock climbing instructor at 11:10am on the beach.  Anyone attending needs to be there to listen to the safety briefing.  The rest of the time will be spent climbing on the host of fantastic boulder problems.  

This event is best suited to young climbers aged 11 - 17 years. Parents are encouraged to attend and help out with moving mats and spotting the climbers.  Please bring appropriate clothing for all the elements usually encountered on a March weekend in west Donegal - waterproofs, warm clothes, sun cream, shorts and t-shirt...you will probably be glad of it all!  The granite rock can be rough on the hands so a roll of tape is advised to cover any sore finger tips.

Extra info:
There is limited parking available on the google maps link above and no toilet facilities at the beach.  Please be extremely considerate of local fishermen accessing the peer when you are parking.
