Scouts go climbing

Last Thursday our Scouts went out to Suas Climbing Centre for a night of Rock Climbing. This was the first of four sessions the Scouts will be doing over the next few months. 

Session one was an introduction to climbing. In the upcoming sessons we’ll be covering bouldering, belaying and other climbing techniques. Thanks to Dave and Oisin for teaching the Scouts on the night. Looking forward to the next session

Cubs conquer Moylussa

Well done to all of our cubs today who climbed to Clare’s highest point Moylussa. After a slightly wet start, the weather turned for the best and we had sunshine all the way up and down. A special mention to out young cubs just up from beavers who completed their first major climb and to all of the other cubs – great achievement boys.

It is always a successful hike when everyone gets down safe and uninjured
Thanks to leaders Mike, Ger and venturer Jordan for bringing the boys on this adventure
