We don't usually get cold winters in Ireland, and if we did Clare wouldn't be the place to go for mountaineering. Instead, most climbers go bouldering during the winter. Or stay inside. Here are a few of the easier problems from the boulders near Doolin, Co. Clare. This place is a good option during the winter when wet weather usually leaves the bigger crags damp. Just don't go when the swell is big. Which it often is...
Most of the problems in the area are more like short routes but there are some boulders lying around the place too. Unfortunately a lot of the best problems are the ones nearest the sea. With the big swell...
The last one here is very close to the edge of a small cliff (~5m) so it's probably best not to fall off in case you roll over the edge. Watch out for loose holds too... I'm not selling it well am I?!
