Welcome to the Wild Summits Weekend Expedition. I have put together this document to give you a little insight into what’s in store for the weekend.
This weekend is about having fun, getting out and enjoying the great outdoors. Along the way you will learn many valuable tips and tricks and maybe even grow a desire to continue onto bigger things in the mountains.
We will be touching on the basics of many skills in the mountains and by the end of it you should be more comfortable with map reading, camp-craft, using a compass and more. We will camp under the stars and even go for a night hike!
You’ve only got one life, so start living it!
The boring yet the important stuff first. Below I have attached two forms for each date. One is a general medical form stating that you are fit for the hike, the other is a T&C’s form to save any confusion in the future. On the day of expedition you will be asked to sign a form stating that everything you input into the form is accurate. These need to be filled out in order for Wild Summits to be covered by insurance.
The meeting point is at Baravor carpark in Glenmalure Valley.
This may change due to weather conditions. You will be contacted before the expeditions with all updates.
Coming from Dublin: Once you reach the crossroads at the Glenmalure lodge, take the right. Continue down this road until you come to a dead end that opens up into a carpark.
I have attached a kit list which which details all of the gear that we Wild Summits supply and also what you must supply yourself. I have also detailed extras that will make your expedition more comfortable. If you wish to use any of your own equipment such as tent, sleeping bag, etc. then let me know
