High Point Ireland is the outward-facing hub for the sport hillwalking community in Ireland. This means that we are willing to establish two-way working relationships with other organisations who can bring high-quality products and specialist skills to the High Point Ireland project. We see little point in trying to build every element of our community from scratch if some of those elements have already been successfully developed elsewhere by established experts. We are not about being self-contained. We are about being the best, and promoting the best.
Peakhunter (peakhunter.com) is the premiere Digital Global Summit Log. The Peakhunter app is unique: it only allows you to log an entry using your iPhone or Android device while physically present at a summit or High Point location. The time-stamped log entry proves that you were actually there. Peakhunter makes it easy to keep track of all the peaks you have ascended. The app uses GPS to confirm your exact location, therefore access to a mobile phone network is not required. You can download all the peaks for a given country, making them available offline for when you have no internet access. For sport hillwalking in Ireland, we recommend that you download all the peaks for Ireland and the UK.

Please note that we now require Peakhunter log entries as the primary meas of verifying your High Point and summit visits in our competitions. We still recommend that you take a selfie on location as a backup (but also as a memento for yourself).
