Four Peaks Challenge 2016

Four Peaks Challenge 2016

Climb the highest peak in each of the four provinces in 2016. The Four Peaks Challenge Award will be presented to each member who is successful in climbing all four peaks, at the club’s Christmas Party/ Dinner in December 2016.

The first peak is Carrantuohil at 1,038 metres (3,406 feet) Ireland’s highest mountain and a worthy challenge for any Backpacker. This challenge takes place on the March 13th

The second peak challenge is Mweelrea (814 metres), Connaught’s highest mountain. This takes place during the Easter Weekend (March 26, 27th and 28th) where the club is spending the weekend at the Leenane Hotel in Leenane, Co. Galway.

The third peak challenge is Lugnaquilla 925 metres (3,305 feet) which is situated in the Wicklow Mountains. Backpacker members will have the opportunity to climb Leinster’s highest mountain during the summer on a date to be finalised.
Slieve Donard (850 metres) Northern Ireland’s highest mountain is the final challenge and is provisionally slotted in for September.
