Last Sunday, Ray Creaney led a group of nine Mid Tipp Hill Walkers on the moderate level walk to Lough Curra and then up to the snow-covered summit of Slievecushnabinnia. There they met four other walkers who were unsure of how to descend to the car-park, and who were very happy to return with Ray and his group Meanwhile, sixteen walkers crossed the Knockmealdowns from the Vee to the Lynch monument on the high level walk led by Ollie Walsh. This was a great walk was done in a very fast time – indicating the cold and windy but bright and clear conditions. Next Sunday (16 February), there will only be a high-level walk led by Tony Madden at 10am, and the following Sunday (23 February), as many in the club will be in Scotland Highlands for the annual winter meet, there will only be a moderate level walk, this time at 11am.
Meanwhile, the Friday night climbing at the indoor wall in Upperchurch has been continuing and is a great way of building up new skills and of preparing for the outdoor season in a few months’ time. However, , there will be no Friday night climbing for the next two weeks.
