NY 351128 700m. E Facing. The classic route is Chock Gully but it takes some time to come into climbable condition. The easier turf routes come into condition more quickly. There are some rarely climbed summer routes. Approach to Grisedale Tarn but take the main track up Dollywagon Pike to the corner of the last Zigzag GR 348127, then cut across a level area in the ridge and drop down the north side of Cock Cove Crag and then round to Falcon Crag. From the east walk up the main Grisedale valley appraoching the crag directly. Descent: Walk round to the N (Right side looking at the crag) or if you started at Dunmail head back W over the ridge.
