Tarn Crag (Easedale)

Height: 1,801 Feet - 550 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 303 093
Area: Central
Ordnance Survey: OL7
Wainwright Guidebook: Three

Easedale Tarn has a popular venue for visitors: a romantic setting, inured in bracken-clad moraines with a background of craggy fells, and easy accessibility from Grasmere, have combined this a favourite place of resort. The dominant feature in the rugged skyline around the head of the tarn is the arching curve of Tarn Crag, above a wild rocky slope that plunges very steeply to the dark waters at its base.

Easedale Tarn is not the only jewel in Tarn Crags lap. A smaller sheet of water, Coledale Tarn, occupies a hollow on the higher shelf; beyond, indefinite slopes climb to the top of the parent fell, High Raise.
