Long mountain routes up a large buttress at the head of Langdale. Best routes - Ribboletto(E4), Sword of Damocles(E1), Cambridge Climb(VD). Perhaps also famed for the description of Siamese Chimneys in the 2013 Langdale Guide.
It gives some brilliant mid-grade winter climbing, some of the more recent routes are well worth it.
One and threequarter hours uphill from the Old dungeon Ghyll Car park (arrive early at weekends!).
