Women with Altitude 2014

April 11, 2014  |  News  |  Share

Leenane, Co. Galway May 16 – 19

Women with Altitude, as the name suggests, is a women only event hosted by Mountaineering Ireland. The weekend event covers all things related to climbing and hillwalking and aims to increase confidence and enjoyment of the mountains through the development of existing skills. It also provides an opportunity for participants to try new activities which they are then encouraged to pursue further in their own time.

We have a packed programme for 2014 covering numerous activities from ‘Introduction to Rock Climbing’ to ‘Improvers Navigation’, ‘Scrambling’ and ‘Nordic Walking’. We will also have a number of speakers who have made their career in the mountains and will be sharing their experiences with us.

Our focus this year is to encourage participation from the under 25 age category and to facilitate this, we have a reduced registration rate of €50 for under 25s. We are also offering six free places* (value €85) to under 25s who believe that they can put their experience from the weekend to good use in their own environment. Please click here for an application form for one of the free places.

All applications must reach us on or before Friday April 25th.

Please visit www.womenwithaltitude.ie for full details on the event and bookings. Accommodation is available in the Leenane Hotel, the Sleepzone Connemara hostel and there will also be camping facilities in Leenane itself.

*Free registration (€50) plus activities to value of €35. Transport to and from Leenane and accommodation not included.
