Climb with Charlie

Just 3 weeks to go before our “Climb with Charlie” event, on Saturday, 2nd April. We have had a great response and currently have 40 walkers signed up for the event, but we have capacity to take more… so if you have been thinking about it…just do it!!! We promise the Gap’s legendary craic, after all who else is mad enough to climb Slieve Gullion for sunrise!!!

Meeting at the Three Steps Pub, Dromintee, at 5:30 am for set off at 6am. It will be a 3.5/4 hours walk mostly on forest trails, but we reccomend walking boots, to layer up and take a snack/warm drink for the top. Don’t forget a head torch. On return there will be a well deserved cup of tea/coffee and a bite to eat in The Steps.

If you needed encouragement just watch Charlie’s video at the link below and check out the official Walk with Charlie website where you will see our walk registered, and where any non walkers who would like to make a donation can do so. Anyone wishing to climb with us, please make contact through our email address, info@gaponorth.co.uk

Cooley’s Walk Sunday 27th 2022

  1. The forecast for Sunday looks promising but very windy so bring plenty of warm layers.  New walkers welcome, meeting at the Gap O’ the North Pub for registration and safety briefing at 10 am. Remember all walkers must be wearing deep tread walking boots, have a waterproof jacket, gloves and hat, as well as a packed lunch. Jeans are not recommended as they get wet and stay wet, leading to uncomfortable grumpy walkers and we don’t want any of those!!

  Expect to be out for 4 hours.

Registration can be paid in advance at any of our scheduled walks or on the day to those pre registered at info@gaponorth.co.uk Registration fee £20.00 / €25.00 Whilst we welcome older children please be mindful, this is a moderate level hill walk of approximately 3.5 – 4 hrs.
