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 place in Ireland.

Or the Tooth?
by Conor74  22 Apr 2011
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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/6308/

Who named it that?
by jkforde  21 Apr 2011
I've never heard the high point of the Beenkeeragh ridge called 'The Bones' - anyone know the origin of the name as it's certainly not used by the local walkers or climbers down in the Kingdom. There is 'The Bone' ridge further east along the Reeks walk though... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/6307/

Misty Ridge
by march-fixer  28 Aug 2013
This section of the Beenkeragh Ridge is even spectacular when shrouded in swirling mist.

It is debatable whether it is easier to traverse this area in clear or misty conditions. When clear, you have a splendid view of the possible destination of a tumble into the glen. When misty, you are shielded from the sheer drop on either side, but conditions can make the going underfoot tricky.

There are superb photo opportunities in all weather conditions! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/15162/
