Hill features

A vegetated and easy angled but surprisingly large crag, about 100m high. In winter it makes a good way onto Eel Crag itself as it holds snow fairly well. Left of centre is the obvious Eel Crag Gully, and further left the crag swings round into a long east facing scraggy scarp, up which Wainwright's Pinnacle Rake slants. Further left and higher up is Scott Crag, which has a separate entry in the database.

GR 192 207, altitude 700m (not counting the scrotty outcrops lower down below the scree).

Approach notes

The big track up Coledale is the obvious way, but a traverse from Coledale Hause loses very little height, so it fits well into a winter anticlockwise version of the Coledale Horseshoe. If doing this in mist, note that the large broken area closer to Coledale Hause isn't the crag! It's behind, up and left.
