Climbfest 2019

The 2019 Climbfest will be on the usual Mayday bank holiday weekend 3-6May at Malin Head.

Climbing will be centred on the sea cliffs east of Bamba’s Crown (the tower at Malin Head carpark). See map below.

Camping for tents, as well as parking for campers and caravans will be available in the field beside The Seaview Tavern at SlieveBawn (approx 4km from the climbing areas). Car parking at Malin Head is limited, so car sharing or cycling between the campsite and Malin Head is recommended.

The beginner’s climbing session will be on Saturday morning. Meet at 9.45 at the campsite, or 10am at Malin Head carpark. If you arrive late, just walk east from the carpark along the coast and listen out for the climbers.

The Malin Head topo guide can be downloaded here.

Additional topo guides, covering all of the routes on Inishowen, can be found here.

Midsummer Gola Island Trip 22-24 June

Midsummer camping and climbing on Gola Island 22nd- 24th June.

Sabba is the boatman (phone: 0872245881), whose ferry departs from Magheragallon Pier, Bunbeg.  According to his facebook page here, boats leave 11.00 AM and 2.00PM daily, but he seems to post on the page regarding next day’s sailings. Best to ring him and check, as this may change due to tide and weather.

Anthony was planning to arrange a 7pm ferry crossing on the Friday night, check the CC Facebook page for info on that.

In additon to ropes and gear, bring food, plenty of drink and some firewood for the campfire, if you have any lying around.
