A rocky arete between Carrauntoohil and Beenkeeragh. Previously Carrauntoohil Tooth in MV and then The Bones. Changed to have main name Na Cnámha in consultation with Kerry Mountain Rescue (Gerry Christie) and OSi to avoid confusion with The Bone a spur NE of Cnoc na Toinne   Na Cnámha is the 8th highest summit in Ireland.

I note the info section states that this was previously known as Carrauntoohil Tooth here.

Richard Mersey describes the route from Beenkeragh to Carrauntoohil involving a traverse of 'a three-pronged minor summit that Sean O'Suilleabhain calls the Tooth'. Much as I like his book, think 'minor' was the wrong adjective, evidently he meant relative to its neighbours.

Jkforde notes the Bone spur to the Eastern Reeks which can lead to a little confusion. Every time I bring some family member or friend up Carrauntoohil you see the puzzled look on their face as you swing into view of the Bones and they think you can't even bother to change the names you're making up! On the other hand, if I was pointing out the Hag's Tooth followed by the Tooth, it may not have been much better... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/6308/
