On our approach to the mountain we walk into Hag’s Glen for one hour before our first rest, with some scrambling we reach the base of the Hag’s Tooth at 500 metres high.
We then prepare for the summit and the actual climb, with short scrambles and steep climb we will head up via the corrie between Knockbrinnea and Hag’s Tooth Ridge.
From the top we can see the finest views of Beenkeragh Ridge which join to Carrauntoohil within a distance of 1,000 metres, and the beautiful Iveragh Peninsula.
After lunch break at the summit, If the weather is very good (good visibility, no wind, rain, cold) on the way down the route would be via Beenkeragh Ridge and Carrauntoohil.
Option: In poor weather conditions descent to Lisleibane via the northern slopes of Knockbrinnea with amazing views toward Dingle Peninsula and The Atlantic Ocean all the way down.
