Bouldering in the hidden valley of Glenmacnass, Co. Wicklow

Bouldering is climbing in its purest form. Here in Ireland, we are lucky enough to have some top quality bouldering venues, in beautiful locations. 

We provide a variety of workshops for all levels, with the ultimate goal of providing climbers with the skills and knowledge to explore these boulders for themselves confidently, in a safe and enjoyable manor.



Bouldering Workshops

Mountain Odyssey, originally known as Redmond Climbing, were Ireland's first, dedicated providers of outdoor bouldering introduction classes. Our aim was, and still is, to encourage and inspire climbers to make the transition from indoor, to outdoor bouldering. We want to share our knowledge of outdoor bouldering with other climbers, and provide them with the knowledge and skills to be safe and respectful in the mountains.
