Scrambling in Munster?

    Hi Folks,

    I've been hill walking for years now and have done a little scrambling in recent years. However im interested in meeting up with other people who go out scrambling on the hills on a regular basis. Because i often head out on the hills alone i find that i lack the confidence to advance my scrambling skills due to the fact that im on my own.

    While i acknowledge that i should go and join a hillwalking club here in Cork i have found in the past that the main area of interest among members is hill walking as opposed to scrambling. It appears that the 2 main clubs here in Cork are Cork Backpackers and Cork Mountaineering club. To which club would ye advise me join? I have all the gear needed and will happily share travel costs and transport duties for any like minded scramblers of there.

    I don't know cork well but there's a book called Munster's Mountains which is a great guide for scrambling in that part of the world. There's also which seems like a good resource.

    Some nice scrambling in and around killarney also some around mount brandon on the dingle peninsula.

    As for clubs you should just join so you can meet people to go scrambling with.
