New IMC members meet in Glendalough

As it is every year, some time in May Irish Mountaineering Club takes its new members for some multipitch adventures in Glendalough, Co. Wicklow. Since most of these newbies already spent few weeks with us on Thursday evenings in Dalkey Quarry, it was just formality to rely show them the ropes.

Most of them newbies were very good being able to follow the fantastic multipitch routes available at that crag. The ones that still needed some more practices stayed at lower Acorn Buttress and Expectancy slabs areas.

I got ‘assigned’ Sebastian and Monika, who followed me through four pitches of Prelude/Nightmare, a 2* VS up the main face.
