Short Summary created by jackill  14 Jan 2012
There are 2 main carparks to access this side of the 'Reeks,
Lisleibane V82600 87450 A and Cronins Yard V83600 87300 B.
From either of these follow the track to V82150 85350 C just before the stream from Lough Gouragh.
Go right here skirting to the right of the stream and lake, all the time keeping to the rocky slopes to your right aiming for V81600 85100 D and you will pick up the track that leads to the Heavenly gates/O'Sheas gully routes to Carrauntoohil. After crossing a stream you will come to a grassy gully at V81200 85000 E. This is steep but climbable and you will pick up a faint track as you gain height.Climb this gully, skirting to the right when the base of the rocky outcrop of the Tooth appears above you.The summit is really only a pinnacle of rock and a calm day and a head for heights is a must to stand on it.

Better known as the 'Hag's Tooth'. Can be approached from the NE side. It does involve some climbing however. The top has just about enough space for 2 people. Some of the drops are almost vertical so you need to be careful. Not a spot to be in windy weather or if you dont like heights. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/1670/

After climbing Knockbrinnea we descended to the Hags Glen by the stream which runs right by the Hag's Tooth. The stream runs down through a gully near the tooth so care is needed but we found it to be quite safe, although as I mentioned in my comments on Beenkeragh and Knockbrinnea the area is very boulder strewn so watch where you step. If I had known that the tooth was counted as a peak on this site I would have bagged it as we passed right by it! It actually would make the end of an interesting horseshoe for those parked in Cronin's. Carrauntoohil, Beenkeragh, Both Knockbrinneas, and finally Stoompeenaduff (although I dont think I would descend to Stoompeenaduff in wet weather).

Some Sundays I get up at 5am to climb a mountain which as you can imagine has caused much debate on my sanity with my wife (who is a mental health nurse, I kid you not!)can you imagine though arriving at Lisleibane at 8am to find cars there before you? madder or closer than me I hope.I approached the Tooth using the standard track to the Heavenly gates/O'Sheas and then ascending the gully mentioned by Conor74, the final scramble to the summit was difficult due to the patches of very slippery wet snow, and you'll need to say hello to a place called vertigo and no wind to stand on the summit(or more probably sit). But you'll probably be alone and on one of the most exciting ridges in Ireland.Of all the approaches to high mountains that I've climbed this challenges the best. I have said this only once before in my MV "career", if you haven't been here before get in the car now and go. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/4580/

Now I know Simon has a better imagination with rocks than most of us but is there a dog sitting on the back of the tooth? or maybe it was the altitude,or the cold, or the sun, or his dodgy spectacles.............. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/4581/
