Coledale round © john1963
A vegetated and easy angled but surprisingly large crag, about 100m high. In winter it makes a good way onto Eel Crag itself as it holds snow fairly well. Left of centre is the obvious Eel Crag Gully, and further left the crag swings round into a long east facing scraggy scarp, up which Wainwright's Pinnacle Rake slants. Further left and higher up is Scott Crag, which has a separate entry in the database.
GR 192 207, altitude 700m (not counting the scrotty outcrops lower down below the scree).
The big track up Coledale is the obvious way, but a traverse from Coledale Hause loses very little height, so it fits well into a winter anticlockwise version of the Coledale Horseshoe. If doing this in mist, note that the large broken area closer to Coledale Hause isn't the crag! It's behind, up and left.
