After climbing Knockbrinnea we descended to the Hags Glen by the stream which runs right by the Hag's Tooth. The stream runs down through a gully near the tooth so care is needed but we found it to be quite safe, although as I mentioned in my comments on Beenkeragh and Knockbrinnea the area is very boulder strewn so watch where you step. If I had known that the tooth was counted as a peak on this site I would have bagged it as we passed right by it! It actually would make the end of an interesting horseshoe for those parked in Cronin's. Carrauntoohil, Beenkeragh, Both Knockbrinneas, and finally Stoompeenaduff (although I dont think I would descend to Stoompeenaduff in wet weather).
