Stickmata5+WicklowMall HillHeart Of DarknessH Of D is a nice rounded boulder in the forest above the track that bisects Mall Hill. The best way to find it to follow the forext road down the valley and a few meters past the small wooden hut hut up into the forest following the line of the firebreaks. Stickmata starts on the left and uses a few slopers to get the sidepull flake. The real price line is to the right.Dave Flanagan20/09/08

-4WicklowGlendaloughTrack BoulderJust after the trees before you reach the tripod boulder a track winds its way up the hillside.

In the Moon6a!WicklowGlendaloughHoliday BouldersThe striking steep arete and seam to the left of the main block. step up on sidepulls until the seam can be reached with left hand.

Entertainment for the Short 2.05+WicklowWicklow GapElectric MountainOn the face below problem 5.

Start on a slopey crimp above the sharp pinch on the left (two mats might be required :P) and an undercut in the face-splitting crack. Again, a hard move to stand up on the right foot in the crack then balance and reach delicately for the lip.

Witness The Shitness4CorkBarley CoveRoof sectionOn the smaller cove of Barley Cove beach in West Cork there is a small roof with a spacious ledge on top. This is on the right hand side of the cove as you look at the sea. Problems are on low quality rock and mostly easy, but worth a pair bringing a pair of shoes for on a sunny day.

Witness the Shitness takes the most obvious line of undercuts a few metres to the right of the high tide line on the beach. Using these, pull through the small roof and mantel onto the ledge. Height depends on the state of the sand.

Blue Hookv4ClareDoolinSplashback boulderFirst ascent of a fine problem on the 'Splashback' boulder by Sarah Hoare. Called 'Blue Hook'. A guess at a grade puts it at v4/v5, but is was climbed in poor (damp) conditions so it's hard to say for sure.
