I climbed the eastern Beenkeeragh on Friday9th JUly 2004. The day was lovely and sunny with no wind. This gave great scrambling conditions so I made the most of it and tackled the Hags Tooth full on. It is not as difficult as it first appears and most of the difficult bits can be avoided. I had done it before but it was misty and the rock was damp so I couldn't do the tricky bits. No such problems today so I enjoyed a full on scramble on wonderfully grippy rock. The views across to Carrauntoohil and across the Hags Glen are marvellous. I have never done Howling Ridge but it looks wonderfully tempting. I suppose I will have to be guided up there, it definately looks to be a rope job. I'm including a picture of some of the pinnacles on the ridge above the Tooth. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/1017/
