24th - 25th May: 2 Day Hike and Light-weight camp

Our scouts well Conor and Andrew joined Fiona on her Gaisce walk from Lough Dan to Roundwood via the Wicklow way.

We set off on the Saturday morning and walked along the Wicklow way for about 18km until we got to Crone, then we collected gear from Caz and headed down to Camp by the river near Knockree.

On Sunday we walked from Knockree to 2 rock mountain another 17km or so (difficult to be precise as the Wicklow Way seems to have extended itself unbeknowest to the map) but deviated from the Wicklow way to take in Tibradden and then got collected at Tibradden lane.

The hike and camp was fantastic and we intend to do it again over the summer (as it is part of the Phoenix)!

We had a scorching day on the Sunday and a few people got burnt...
