Picture: Coomacloghane and Tooth
 
Tooth
Short Summary created by CaptainVertigo  28 Aug 2014
Coomacloghane is rightly regarded as Tooth's sister. They are cut from the same cloth: exposed rock bands tilting upwards. Both summit plateaus are strewn with slabs akimbo. Both have unparalleled views over Kenmare River (bay) to the mountains of Iveragh. Both look into the extraordinary Pocket enveloped by the horseshoe of which they are part. Coomacloghane measures up at 599m (but watch this space as MV is recalibrating in the area). Tooth is 592m. Their gentle saddle rests at a mere 550m. But Coomacloghane alone has close up views of Lackawee and the Knockagrees and the darkly mysterious Glenbeg Lough. Find this mountain by driving from Kenmare to Lauragh. Ascend gradually over Tooth parking at V76724 57296 A . Alternatively, walk or drive into the Pocket and park at V75426 55335 B. Go into the field to the right of the nearest bungalow and begin a steep ascent staying right of the river gully during the early pull. The Pocket access will result in a demand for €4. You may find the combination of the gradient and the fee doubly taxing. Allow 2 hours to get up over Tooth. The alternative is to pass Lauragh and go on to Ardgroom, turning left there for Glenbeg Lough. Park at its NE tip at V70103 53800 C and ascend the obvious slopes to the east of the lake. Allow 1.5 hours to get to the summit Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/279/comment/5039/

Picture: Blue Beara skies on a late spring evening caps my 600th MV summit
Another small achievement
by ahendroff  26 May 2010
Unlike my 500th, my 600th MV summit was done solo, on a late spring evening under an azure blue sky. The circuit of the Rabach's glen was tackled in clockwise fashion starting from the farmhouse at the end of the road (a charge of 4 euro applies) in the Pocket. Fabulous views all round of all the Caha mountains and Iveragh peninsula. Ended up walking most of the Caha's in four consecutive days: just about 90km of distance and slightly over 4,500m of ascent. A special mention to dbloke who joined me the day after for muted celebrations of my previous day's achievements (still unknown to me at that time for I wasn't 100% sure which was my 600th MV summit before checking MV itself later on ... yea, it's got to that stage) and a set of enjoyable walks (yes, walks) on Hungry Hill, some remote corrie lakes and a few more tops elsewhere, followed by not the most memorable fish and chips you'd want to purchase in Castletownbere........c'est la vie!

This summit is surprisingly rocky and follows a relatively twisted descent from Tooth Mountain (veering close to the steep sided edge of the valley avoids large rock steps which are slow to negotiate and steep). Not terribly spectacular or dramatic but the views into the rocky Rabach's Glen are excellent. This walk is part of the Cummeengeera Horseshoe walk.

Looking Over Glenbeg Lough
by CaptainVertigo  28 Aug 2014
There is a noticeable drop off Coomacloghane to its western col. Its a drop from 599m to about 500m with a rise then to 584m to get back on the circuit. As you make this journey you see Lackawee up ahead to the west and the dark waters of Glenbeg Lough. But in the distance there's the Atlantic ocean, and to the left there's the imminent Eskatarriff, and it's all SO satisfying. One of the routes up to Coomacloghane is from the NW tip of the lake over the rise on the right of the photo. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/279/comment/17653/
