The summit cairn is indicated as an antiquity on the Discovery map but the summit itself is nameless. The name Carnavaddy is given on the Táin Way map guide. Carrickrawor (An Chreig Ramhar [LL]), Slievetrasna, Slievestucan and the Castle are marked as satellite peaks or slopes of this mountain. Corrakit (Corr an Chait) is a townland to the east, on the north side of the Windy Gap. [OSI]   Carnavaddy is the 643rd highest summit in Ireland.

From Clermont Cairn (see for previous stage of walk) there is a distinct broad track with a good many yellow stone markers running directly on to Carrickrawor but the track does not appear to be shown on Mourne OS Sheet 29 (1:50000). The track itself is in good order for the most part but there are a number of wet areas to be negotiated. Hill-walkers, mountain-bikers and agricultural vehicles have taken their toll on parts of the track. This leg of the walk is quite long (approx 2.5K) necessitating some long drops and equally long rises on to spot heights IJ 10434 15374 & IJ 10674 14847. Eventually, the impressive and substantial cairn on Carrickrawor comes into view. The entire ridge walk is brought into clear relief from the summit area. Great views across to Dundalk on one side and Warrenpoint/Newry, Rostrevor & the Mournes on the other, with the remaining Cooley summits in the distance across the Windy Gap.
