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.

Spent a very pleasant evening climbing Carnavaddy from Clermont Cairn today. From the cairn above the TV mast, there is a broad track that leads some of the way to Carnavaddy. When the track peters out there is a visible trail that leads off towards the mountain. There are some steep drops and rises as well as some wet and marshy sections to be encountered along the way but nothing overly trying. Waymarkers (by means of stones painted yellow) also mark the trail. The summit itself is a very leisurly 3/4 to 1 hour walk from the TV mast and is decorated with a massive cairn. It also offers superb views to Slieve Gullion as well as across to Slive Foye and onto the Mourne Mountains. Treated to sunset over Clermont Cairn and Gullion before making the 40 minute trek back to the car. The perfect walk for a summers evening. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/531/comment/3976/
