You can approach from Patterdale of faster from Dunmail Raise. Park at Dunmail Raise GR328117 and walk up to Grisedale Tarn then contour around the fellside below the Crags. From the east walk up the main Grisedale valley appraoching the crag directly. Descent: Walk round to the S (Left side looking at the crag) or if you started at Dunmail head back W over the ridge.
