Mountaineering Ireland Summer Alpine Meet

July 14 - July 21

Mountaineering Ireland will organise its annual Summer Alpine Meet from 14-21 July.

After its last hugely popular and successful meet in Soelden in Austria, the 2024 Mountaineering Ireland ‘Summer Alpine Meet’ is returning to the versatile and all-encompassing area of Ailefroide in the Dauphine Alps, France.

Nestled at the foot of the Mont Pelvoux (3946 m) this beautiful, small and rather quiet village is located in the 2nd largest French mountaineering area after Chamonix. The Dauphine Alps (meaning Dolphin) is one of France’s foremost areas for all mountain activities with three of France’s highest mountains outside of the Mont Blanc massif and many other fabulous peaks and glaciers. With spectacular, high walking passes, more than 100 peaks over 3,000m and steep rock walls, it is hardly surprising that walkers and mountaineers have been attracted to this region for more than a century.

The following activities are offered: Alpinism, Rock Climbing, Via Ferrata, Walking

The course is supported by UIAGM Guides who instruct the Alpine Courses.
