The 5 Peaks Challenge-The Sugar Loaf

We completed our last day of the 5 Peaks Challenge with a technical climb up The Sugar Loaf. The weather was against us last week so this was our 4th successful peak summit out of four. The climb was technical in places with steep terrain, rocks and slippery shale. However, with the sun shinning the reward for this relatively short effort was stunning views over the east coast. With the some quick map reading skills we were able to plot out climbs over the last few weeks- Carrickgollogan, The Hell Fire Club and Bray Head. This has been a unique programme for thew group. They have learned orienteering skills and map reading. They have learned how to work better together and they have also learned that within a short drive from school or home is an outdoor world of adventure and 'headspace.'

On behalf of Corey, Rhys, Ian, Isaac, Leon and Mark I would like to thank Lisa, Shauna, Karl and Adam from the L.A.B project for all your work over the course of this year to support his group and enrich their education with experiences that they will always remember. Go raibh mile maith agat!
