Rock climbing in Ireland and First Aid?
I am writing this short post about rock climbing in Ireland and first aid because recently while I was having a break with a friend in a coffee shop, we got into a conversation with a tourist in his early twenties.
This young man was in Ireland not only to see and travel the country but also to do some rock climbing in Ireland which I have to admit I found intriguing, as I did not realize that this Adventure Sport was as popular as it seems to be in Ireland.
After googling “rock climbing in Ireland” which is a very specific search in ways I was surprised and did not expect to see that there were 863,000 search results.
Clearly this adventure sport is more popular than I thought !
After my Google search, I wondered what first aid precautions rock climbers in Ireland normally took. What first aid products might be suitable for this sport?.
I am no rock climbing expert, but it would seem logical to me that at the very least participating in the sport would be physically exerting on the body.
I wonder if either cuts and bruises of a minor nature are commonplace in the sport?
Indeed I wonder whether ankle sprains are common or not?
It would be great if any rock climber who reads this short post, could comment upon good practices to adhere to insofar as first aid in the sport is concerned.
Ireland has a rich diversity of traditional (trad) climbing on different types of rock from granite, sandstone and quartzite, as well as some conglomerate and limestone cliffs. There is climbing on sea cliffs and in the mountains often in the most beautiful parts of Ireland
