Another successful Mountain Skills 2 course on a chilly but dry weekend in the Wicklow Mountains.
Thanks to the guys for their hard work and good humour, some top navigation skills and route finding in evidence. Nice one!

A brown sepia day hiking on Camaderry, in the Wicklow Mountains, Ireland.
Icy, misty and cold with a good bit of windchill, ideal for trying out new kit options.

A mix of sunshine and mist on Djouce mountain today. Nevertheless, a wonderful day to be out on a guided hike in Ireland, with stunning far-reaching views...
