NY 324284 750m N Facing. This very turfy crag is high and North facing and will quite often be the only crag in the Lakes to be in condition. It takes the brunt of all Northerly and North Easterly weather and never sees the sun. Combining aroute on the crag with a descent of Halls Fell or Sharp Edge gives a good alpine outing. Approach. Ascend to the foot of Sharp Edge go over the ridge on a small countour path which drops you down into the corrie and leads up under the crag. Descent: Either down Sharp Edge or Halls Fell. For a quicker descent come down the shoulder from the top of the routes and pick up the ascent path.
