Women With Altitude Event 2023

Date: 19th - 21st May 2023
Venue: Petersburg OEC, Clonbur, Co Galway

Women with Altitude is a Mountaineering Ireland initiative to encourage women to take on greater challenges in mountaineering, be they personal challenges, technical or leadership challenges.

This is going to be a weekend of adventure for all women interested in hillwalking and climbing from all over the country. We will be based in the heart of Connemara at Petersburg House, Clonbur, Co Galway. To set the tone for pushing your boundaries we are taking over Petersburg OEC for the weekend and going camping! All participants will be camping and we will also have halls and gazebos to congregate and shelter if needed. There will be lots of opportunity to meet new friends and gain knowledge and experience from our qualified female trainers and mountain leaders, including various courses to improve your skills as well as an opportunity to go hillwalking and climbing independently. So tell all your female friends, and if your friends can’t make it – come anyway, you will not be on your own!

Grab your tent and start pushing your boundaries!
