Rising precipitously from the village of Glenridding, this fell has an elevation of 442 m (1,450 ft) and a prominence of 45 m (148 ft). Its parent peak is Sheffield Pike and it is listed as a Wainwright. At the end of a ridge descending from the Helvellyn range. Although there is no easy ascent – the usual approaches involve a steep (although short) climb - its small, heather-covered top is well worth visiting for the view of Glenridding and beyond, which Wainwright described as ‘delightful’. The fell is topped by a short ridge, the highest point being at the western end, marked with a small cairn.
