Spring in Ben's Font

Bouldering in Cloghole, Ben's Font, Co. Wicklow

April was very nice this year. Probably too warm for proper bouldering conditions but very enjoyable nevertheless; especially in Ben's Font (known to some as Cloghole) where the surrounding landscape is just perfect.

I managed to send that project on the big overhanging boulder by the river (the opposite side of Sad Punk). I decided to call it Exfoliator in the memory of my palm skin. The sit start is definitly way harder.

The following week Mickey the Dude Nicholson got a new "shallow water solo" right above a mini cove in the river.

PS: here's a bouldering guide of Ben's Font in PDF format. Enjoy!
