MonDAY 20TH APRIL 2015

Monday is probably the most important day of the weekend; this is where you go it alone. Staff will be on hand on Sunday to give advice and guidance on routes and techniques but the Monday session gives you the opportunity of walking, scrambling and climbing with your new-found friends and exploring the crags and hills on your own – enjoy!

There are plenty of routes around Killarney for you to put your new found skills into practice. You might want to think about tackling Howling Ridge or climbing in the Gap of Dunloe or indeed navigating either the Glenbeigh Horseshoe or Coomloughra Horseshoe.

07.00 - 09.00 Breakfast
