HIGH SPEED TRAINING
Just a quick thanks to ger and “himself” for their enthusiastic post ref Challenge Training. In that they are delighted, so am I. V good pupils. A quick assessment nailed them as middle Grade 2. We started on ascent technique training on Meelbeag – and by Slieve Bearnagh we had swooped into Grade 1. A 20 min ascent of Bearnagh from the slabs col to the summit is not to be sneezed at.
Now we were pooped coming off to the cars and there might have been some shared driving, from the North back to Dub but a very valuable day I think - and we now have 2 strong walkers in the making.
If they apply what they have learned - mercilessly - and get some distance in, I expect to see them with excellent finishing times at the next 7X7s. I intend to follow up with some annoying after sales.
Said training was a first for ger and “himself” but was also a first for me, so we are all pleased it worked out well.
Ger makes a point in her post that the training can be applied not just to Challenge levels. It can actually be applied from beginner upwards, so if I have sold it as a bit high end, let me rephrase and offer this Training to all hillwalkers who want to improve their technique and stamina and enjoy our wonderful mountains even more.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Minion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need you...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
