Looking ahead through 2019

For the 2019 season, we will be encouraging Highpointeers to register their High Point visits with us by using our recently-launched Highpointeer Score Form.

This new system, together with participants’ Peakhunter logs, will allow us to identify the top placings in 2019 for each of the award categories above. It will also allow us to identify the best-rated guides, events and locations in the following categories:

If you would like to take part in any of our challenges, leagues and awards competitions in 2019, it is worth noting that you will need to have the Peakhunter app installed on your smartphone.

Congratulations to everyone who earned a High Point Ireland award in 2018. We look forward to seeing your names on the list again next year.

Good luck for 2019.

Happy Highpointeering!
