jackill on Hag's Tooth, 2010

Some Sundays I get up at 5am to climb a mountain which as you can imagine has caused much debate on my sanity with my wife (who is a mental health nurse, I kid you not!)can you imagine though arriving at Lisleibane at 8am to find cars there before you? madder or closer than me I hope.I approached the Tooth using the standard track to the Heavenly gates/O'Sheas and then ascending the gully mentioned by Conor74, the final scramble to the summit was difficult due to the patches of very slippery wet snow, and you'll need to say hello to a place called vertigo and no wind to stand on the summit(or more probably sit). But you'll probably be alone and on one of the most exciting ridges in Ireland.Of all the approaches to high mountains that I've climbed this challenges the best. I have said this only once before in my MV "career", if you haven't been here before get in the car now and go. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/4580/
