One of the best low lying valley crags in the Lake District. The crag is divided into the north and south crag . The North Crag is about 250' and has most of the higher grade climbs.
The crag is situated at the northern end of Thirlmere Lake and at the southern end of the beautiful little valley of St John's in the Vale. About a five mile drive on the Ambleside Road out of the town of Keswick.There is a car park directly below the crag .It takes about 10 minutes walk to reach the foot of the crag
