I have climbed the Galty mountains many times in every kind of weather and always enjoy them. On a clear day the uninterrupted views are worth the effort. On several occasions I've climbed and descended using just the compass because of thick cloud. In fact the first time I climbed Galtymore in 1979 I reached the trig pillar (which wasn't broken then) in such poor visibility that I didn't know there was a steel cross just a few yards further to the right. Here is a pic taken some years ago. From the eastern slope of Galtymore looking towards the col and Galtybeg, the snow was over our knees in some places, but great fun.
