What Wainwright said:

"The dominant feature in the rugged skyline of Easedale Tarn is the arching curve of Tarn Crag, above a wild rocky slope that plunges very steeply to the dark waters at its base. Rough that this slope is, at least it has the benefit of sunlight to colour and illuminate the grimness".

Generally climbed from Easedale, Tarn Crag stands over Easedale Tarn providing a stunning view of both the tarn and the valley. Rarely climbed, Tarn Crag is one to avoid in poor weather thanks to the precipitous crags of Deer Bields and Ferngill that stand to the north.

The highest point is a peaked outcrop, topped by a small cairn. The views eastward are extensive.
