Mall Hill Video

The Wicklow cranking season is nearly over and with the longer and warmer days, boulderers will be back to good old Portrane. So as a conclusion of this winter’s posts, here is a video of Mall Hill. Yes I finally took the time to put these little videos together.

They are not as great as I hoped they would be, but I think they are good enough to show the quality of the bouldering in there. It only features the Dublin-Beauvais boulder on the left side of the hill and a couple of boulders in the forest: I have not recorded anything on the right side of the hill but maybe this is an opportunity for next year as there are some awesome lines there too.

I should also mention the climbers names: Michael “the Dude” Nicholson on the slab and “The small Matter of Up” (No Mikey, this was not a first ascent…) , Michael Duffy on “Piece de Resistance” (Michael, this is the only French name I could think of, so feel free to rename it) and Myself on “Living the dream” and “Coup d’Etat”.

Cheers Lads.

You like porn music then Neal? The name is "Suck it and see": It's a double CD set of various artists from the nineties. Be aware that you might find some of it a bit offensive!

Your Video managed to get me back to Mal Hill after a fairly tragic and disappointing visit a couple of years ago. After wading across a river, bashing through forestry, I was pretty unimpressed! However, I then found the boulders in the forest - beautiful boulders and great problems too.... Nice work
