Mid ridge summit with steep sides.
Short Summary created by simon3, CaptainVertigo,  1 Jun 2018
Coomacloghane is rightly regarded as Tooth's sister. They are cut from the same cloth: exposed rock bands tilting upwards. Both summit plateaus are strewn with slabs akimbo. Both have unparalleled views over Kenmare River (bay) to the mountains of Iveragh. Both look into the extraordinary Pocket enveloped by the horseshoe of which they are part. Coomacloghane measures up at 599m (but watch this space as MV is recalibrating in the area). Tooth is 592m. Their gentle saddle rests at a mere 550m. But Coomacloghane alone has close up views of Lackawee and the Knockagrees and the darkly mysterious Glenbeg Lough. Find this mountain by driving from Kenmare to Lauragh. Ascend gradually over Tooth parking at V76724 57296 A . Alternatively, walk or drive into the Pocket and park at V75426 55335 B. Go into the field to the right of the nearest bungalow and begin a steep ascent staying right of the river gully during the early pull. The Pocket access will result in a demand for €4. You may find the combination of the gradient and the fee doubly taxing. Allow 2 hours to get up over Tooth. The alternative is to pass Lauragh and go on to Ardgroom, turning left there for Glenbeg Lough. Park at its NE tip at V70103 53800 C and ascend the obvious slopes to the east of the lake. Allow 1.5 hours to get to the summit Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/279/comment/5039/
