Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, CaptainVertigo,  22 Jun 2015
Tooth Mountain is generally seen as an entrance or exit summit of the celebrated Cumeengeera Horseshoe. It comprises a huge dome of mostly exposed tilted rock layers. The summit plateau offers a platform for the observation N and NW of Kenmare River and the Iveragh Peninsula beyond - Ardgroom Harbour, the faraway Skelligs, the extraordinary Pocket enclosed by the horseshoe, Lackabane and the Eskatarriffs in particular.
Cumeengeera is generally reached from Kenmare by driving through village of Lauragh.
A gradual ascent from V76724 57296 A is recommended.This route leads naturally to a little cliff top walk curving to the summit (taking in the twin spot heights 513).
An alternative approach (involving a charge imposed by landowners of €4 for access to include parking) involves parking at V75426 55335 B, and then going through a gate into the field to the right of the nearby bungalow, reaching the summit plateau by following the river gully that heads N before contouring W.
The journey to sister summit Coomacloghane is short and sweet.
Another alternative approach:
There is room for several cars to park at V755 578 C A, on the Beara Way. Continue along the track through the woods for about 500m to V750 576 D B, where you can access the open hillside. The ascent to the SSW is gentle at first but becomes increasingly steep, although the terrain is firm - mostly short grass and rocks. You will have to negotiate around many impressive, giant slabs of rock as you ascend. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/295/comment/5055/
