ILIM 100 Peaks Challenge
On the weekend of 10th and 11th September 2011, 43 staff from Irish Life Investment Managers undertook what had never officially been done before – attempt to climb all of the 100 highest mountain peaks in Ireland (as listed on Mountainviews) over 1 weekend. This was done in aid of Crumlin Children’s Hospital for whom we are hoping to raise €50,000.

The peaks range from no.100 - Stony Top (714m) in the Dublin/Wicklow mountains to no.1 – Carrauntoohil (1,039m) in the McGillycuddy Reeks in Kerry. In relation to the hikes themselves, the Top 100 Peaks have been sorted into 32 different hike routes, which will be tackled over the two days. The beauty of 100 Peaks is that there is something in it for everyone. The hillwalks can accommodate both the super-fit looking for a tough challenge and the first time hill walker hoping there is a pub near the finish. The challenge weekend involved teamwork and some serious coordination of logistics as staff in teams of 3 or 4 hikers tackled c. 30 hikes over 11 counties in the 4 provinces.September
Well we (nearly) did it – 97 peaks achieved. The weather was appalling particularly in Mayo as the tail end of Hurricane Katia swept the west coast. So by the end of the weekend there were just two peaks in the Sheefry Hills and one peak on Brandon’s Faha Ridge that remained unclimbed. while all the others were scaled. The outstanding 3 peaks have since been climbed so we can say that ILIM climbed the One Hundred Highest Peaks in Ireland for Crumlin Children's Hospital

If you want to find out more about the challenge or to donate, check out our website: www.ilim100peaks.com . Check out the photos to see the sort of conditions the teams had to endure. Any contribution you can make to our efforts will be greatly appreciated.

Headed out last Sunday to climb Tievebaun, but the lightning put me off. Got some great views in the Gleniff Horseshoe as a consolation.
