A drystone wall crosses the summit
Hobcarton Crag is a subsidiary summit of Hopegill Head and is crossed on the popular ridge walk to Grisedale Pike. The crag itself is the north face, a great vegetated wall of slate.

Hobcarton Crag is home to a rare plant - the alpine catchfly. The only other place it can be found in the UK is atop a lonely mountain in Scotland.
