This crag is situated above Honister Pass near the summit of Fleetwith Pike,looks down the Buttermere Valley.From the top of Honister Pass follow the Drum house path to reach the summit plateau of Fleetwith Pike.At a col and small tarn descend heather slopes for about 150'to a terrace which runs back towards the top of the pass to the base of the crag.The climbing is spectacular and due to the situation of the crag very exposed.Considering the lack of traffic many of the central climbs were or still are on clean and sound rock.
