This outlier of the Fairfield group looks down on the village of Patterdale from an elevation of just 433 m (1,421 ft) with a prominence of around 10 m (33 ft). Despite its modest height, it is listed as a Wainwright because of its rocky summit, which he regarded as being ‘worth of a mountain’. Its parent peak is Birks. The summit takes the shape of a low rock tower and there is a small cairn. There are impressive views over Ullswater, with Striding Edge and Helvellyn to the west and Place Fell to the east. Birks and St Sunday Crag are logical additions if you wish to extend your walk.
