What Wainwright said:

"Gibson Knott is the most elevated of the several sundry knobs and bumps that form the crest of the mile-long ridge that linking at its extremities Calf Crag and Helm Crag and dividing the valleys of Far Easedale and Greenburn.

Gibson Knott is almost exactly halfway between Calf Crag and Helm Crag and provides part of a fine ridge walk from Grasmere. Several rocky knolls of similar height can be found near the summit but tradition has resulted in a cairn on the western outcrop.

The view, despite being in a central location, is quite limited but includes Steel Fell and Tarn Crag.
