The Hag's Tooth?
This is a spectacular Gendarme, the most obvious feature on the Hag's Tooth Ridge leading up to Beenkeragh from the Hag's Glen. This is a hard scramble offering a bit of 'diff' rock climbing on some pretty exposed rock. Amazing views to be had on a good day from some very fine vantage points along the way.
