dublin 7 summits
Some things to be aware of before going out on the Dublin 7 Summits:
Kilbride Rifle Range is bordered by mountains, including two of the Dublin arderins: Seefingan and Seehan. We suggest using Corrig Mountain (not an arderin and therefore not included in the challenge) to cross between Seehan and Seefingan to avoid descending into the range.
Anyone attempting this challenge should be able to navigate in poor visibility and have recced their route in advance.
