Over night all Donegal voodoo performance team riders reported good recovery after yesterday’s 181km stage.
Today seven climbs is the order of the day with our riders hitting the pinicle climb mt glengesh at approx 1pm before finishing in Donegaltown.
Huge crowds are expected on the spectular sensational climb… the heart felt support the riders and support team are receiving along the way is incredible and heartfelt.
“Our riders are looking to retain a positive general classification but know that once the international teams leave dungloe the hammer will go down immediately , so a solid warmup is critical to a good start this morning” breakfast this morning porridge honey raisins bananas – beans toast toast and more toast .. coffee. There bottomless pits.. lol
It was a truly enlightening experience. We saw & learned so much. We were usually on the go but the pace was well measured with enough "down-time". Jason was great fun and so willing to help with any issues that arose, a real Irish gem. I would recommend Jason Black adventures to anyone, We travelled from canada and didn't know what we were letting ourselves in for, the trekk organisation was seamless! I will highly recommend.
"It is quite impressive to climb with jason black his experience and motivated from this very humble person is wonderful, he has such a calm effect on everyone your anxiety or feelings toward any challenge are at ease in his company. Jason is without doubt an outstanding mountaineer.
"We had Jason talk to our scout group in Dublin and to say he had everyone enthralled and on the edge of their seats is an understatement. His courage, honesty and openness are a joy in our current climate. His engagement with our youth members was fantastic and they honestly cant stop talking about him. It is an honest no holds barred talk from an ordinary guy who has reached for the stars starting from the depths of despair.
I highly recommend to everyone to listen to this remarkable man."
One of the best adventure climbs i've ever taken and to climb with Jason Black! Dream of a lifetime trip! The technical learning was exceptional! Can't wait to climb again with this guy.
"There are very few times in your life where you happen to go on adventure and listen to people that are able to touch your soul and bones with words and inspire you to become a better human being. This was one of these times for me. A truly superb inspirational human being." To go on adventure with Jason was empowering.
"I don’t think we have ever had such a reaction from being with Jason black adventure, Our team are still talking about him weeks later.
Jason's honesty and Mountain standard is outstanding.
Jason Black is an extraordinary person who believes he is an ordinary man.
Everest lodge was the most beautiful lodgings, fabulous food, inspiring hikes, thought provoking chats and incredible stories.
What a recipe!
I've moved Jason Black to the top of my list as the best in the business.
So amazing! I love Ireland, we did so much on this tour, Jason's insight and knowledge is on another level. His adventures rock!
We were over for a few weeks in Ireland and joined Donegal walking weekend in Ireland trekking with great people, loads of activities crammed in, it was super and Jason was so great, he went above and beyond to help us before and after the weekend with advice and tips. Highly recommend he's worthy of his title as one of the best i've been out hiking with.
We really enjoyed the Ireland walking weekend guided by Jason Black. it was a good balance of culture, trekking and wildlife. Everest lodge is so great. A group of Six of us booked and we all had our own rooms, ensuite, the walls are filled with adventure loved the food and expedition insights.
Out trip to Mont blanc in france was amazing. truly an amazing experience with Jason. He was patient, mindful and his skill level is impressive and make you feel so comfortable and safe at all times.He looked after all members dietary needs and other needs of gear on our trip. He made sure that we had the opportunity to experience the unique climb in a pure mountaineering form. We were a small group size of around 7 and all of us had a great time.
Ive just returned from attending a training weekend with Jason. This guys is a whole different gravy. I thought i knew about Mountaineering navigation and Camp life. I learned more in three days than i did in three years. His mountain craft is incredible, if your serious about outdoor adventure then you won't find better than Jason.

Spent a weekend with Jason and 4 others weekend 20th May to 22nd May 2022 staying at Everest Lodge Dunfanaghy. The weekend was spent Walking and Hiking across the beautiful Derryveagh Mountains. Evenings were filled with beautiful food motivational talks fun and laugher. We were 5 complete strangers on the Friday Evening but come Sunday it felt like we had made friends for life. An Amazing weekend and Experience.

I had a wonderful weekend with Jason and a number of walking enthusiasts at Everest Lodge - would recommend it to anyone, regardless of level of experience in the mountains. Whilst somewhat familiar with the main mountains in Donegal Jason showed us other areas which are kept "under wraps" and hence felt very special to a non-local. I found the guidance with navigation on the mountain particularly helpful and the food over the course of the weekend was amazing!
Some really amazing learning came out of the expedition training. Jason's expertise is different gravy. You can’t go and buy this experience off the shelf.
May 2022 - I had a fantastic weekend hiking with Jason and staying at the lovely Everest Lodge - with four others who were also there for the weekend. Despite Jason’s incredible achievements, his demeanour is so ‘down to earth’ and his focus during our stay was on ensuring we were appropriately challenged while hiking, we felt fully at home at Everest Lodge and we had a lot of fun along the way. The ‘Ireland Walking Weekend’ surpassed my expectations at every level and I’d highly recommend hiking with Jason whenever the opportunity arises.
