Thanks to Andrew Gillespie and Terrill Thompson for contributing to these details. (View history)

Low wide ridge between Langdale and Grasmere. Overlooks Easdale Tarn. Ideal for young and old and for winter walks. Short day walk from Grasmere.

Great views of Langdale Pikes, Coniston range, Bowfell, Fairfield and Helvelyn
