Downhill parking ski center "Cellars" (1750m), passing by Profitis Ilias (2250m). The recorded route does not always go over the classic path, as climbing took place in a snowy field. Με αφετηρία το ορειβατικό καταφύγιο Μ. Δέφνερ (1800μ) πραγματοποιήθηκε ανάβαση στις ψηλές κορυφές του Παρνασσού, κατά σειρά: Γεροντόβραχος (2390μ)- Κοτρώνι (2431μ) - Λιάκουρα (2456μ). Κατάβαση στο parking του χιονοδρομικού κέντρου "Κελάρια" (1750μ), περνώντας από τον Προφήτη Ηλία (2250μ). Η καταγεγραμμένη διαδρομή δεν κινείται πάντα πάνω στο κλασικό μονοπάτι, μιας και η ανάβαση έγινε σε χιονισμένο πεδίο.

extremely beautiful mountain. no shade at all, go very early in the morning in summer season. I did it in mid October. less than 10 degrees at the top, but no need of trousers or jacket, as no wind and perfect blue sky. Sometimes hard to find the track but it's not a problem, as you can walk pretty much everywhere. I did many of the summits, all almost as high as mount Parnassus.
