MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Hag

A trip to the Dentist is less frightening
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.
