The summit of Calders
Calders sits at the end of a ridge of high ground that includes both Bram Rigg Top and The Calf, and is the second highest of the Howgill Fells. Two further ridges complete its profile; one to the south west that forms a popular route for tourists to The Calf and one to the east that is abruptly ended by Cautley Crag.

Thanks to its prominent location at the southern end of the highest ridge in the Howgills, views from Calders into the Yorkshire Dales are spectacular and include many of the hills over 2,000ft including Wild Boar Fell, Baugh Fell, Whernside and the distance outline of Ingleborough.
