“Regarding the twice previous post and micros spikes... By ALL MEANS TAKE THEM!!! They are safety equipment and can provide a tremendous amount of traction on ice and freeze thawed snow ice. Micro spikes are perfectly suited for traversing the west facing slope of Whitney under the correct conditions, knowing those conditions is key. Microspikes and crampons are designed for traction, not trying to stop yourself after you've slipped and are sliding out of control down a slippery slope, that's where you need the axe.”

“I climbed Carrantuohill for the first time on the 22nd July, 2015 (last week).
I can say with some authority based on outdoor experience that it is an understated mountain if not known. I was fortunate to meet with a lovely group of family members, the lead member being from Tralee, who took me along with them. Their patience and graciousness made for an unforgettable experience and wonderful day.
My advice to anybody who has not climbed the mountain, regardless of experience, is to go with somebody who knows the conditions and terrain the first time.
Many experienced climbers have made a central mistake: many assume because the mountain height is below many European continental and world peaks that it is easy. The fact is that no two days are the same on any Irish mountain landscape. Conditions can change rapidly on Carrantuohill.
Bear in mind that the Irish climate is maritime, between tropical and northern latitudes. Micro climates and changes in wind direction and temperature can disorientate even experienced climbers.
Do it right and it is a totally unforgettable experience.
Thanks again to those lovely people with whom I shared an unforgettable experience.

“There is camping at the trailhead, which is at the end of CR 252, 0.2 miles after the third cattle guard you drive over after the road turns to dirt (we were told there was only one!). The parking lot is pretty big!
About .5 to a mile in and after the stream crossing (I'm not sure if it's always running but there were sizable logs crossing the bed) there is a great campsite in the trees on the left, enough room for 4 small tents (we saw 3 large, but I like some space).
In mid July 2015 the trail was clear and very obvious. At the final pitch, as you come off the saddle there are may trails up to the summit. I think any would be fine; we took the obvious one on the (NW) left to keep an eye on a coming storm, but it wound it's way to the SE eventually as well, connecting with the direct routes others were taking. There was just enough snow in the angel to glissade a little ways on the descent (not enough to cut any time, just a fun distraction and respite for my old knees).”
