Tarn Crag (Longsleddale)

Overview
Height: 2,176 Feet - 664 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 488 078
Area: Far Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Two

The gradually rising wall of fells bounding Longsleddale on the east reaches its greatest elevation, and its terminus, in Tarn Crag. To the valley this fell presents a bold front, with Buckbarrow Crag a conspicuous object, but on other sides it is uninteresting, especially eastwards where easy slopes merge into the desolate plateau of the Shap Fells.
