What Wainwright said:

"On the crest of the moorland between Duddon Valley and Eskdale there rises from the heather a series of serrated peaks, not of any great height, but together forming a dark and jagged outline against the sky. The highest of these peaks is Green Crag, a single summit".

Green Crag is the highest of a series of rocky tops which stand out from the Birker Fell moorland. Running from north to south these outcrops present a fine serrated skyline when viewed from Eskdale.

The summit of Green Crag is composed of naked rock and the ordinary walker will only find access from the north or west, mild scrambling being required.
