This is a winter climb, therefore the winter equipment is needed and extra time should be added while planning that route.
The time is depending on the day conditions and skills.
I had perfect condition - very hard snow - easly to run in crampoons
Started very early around 4am as I prefer to do so to have best winter conditions before snow start to melt.
Dificulty - depending on winter conditions
- tricky moment is above Lough Gouragh in the Hags Glen, as route is quite exposed, can be coverd with ice.
- in general the Central Gully is not technicly difficult, just very steep
- the Carrauntoohil top can be tricky as well as it is rocky terrain.
- OShea gully is nice one for sliding - again depending on conditions
