A craggy southern front, a switchback ridge, a cluster of small but very beautiful tree – girt tarns (old reservoirs), and a great quarry that reveals the core of colourful slate lying beneath the glorious jungle of juniper & birch, heather and bracken, make this one of the most attractive of Lakeland fells.
