Topographical features: The Wainwright summit of Tarn Crag (Easdale) is the small cairn perched on a small rocky peak. The true summit will also be the Wainwright summit.

Points of interest: Deer Bield Crags forms the north face of Tarn Crag and is a recognised area for climbing. In the summer of 1997 a huge rockfall changed the character of this crag.

Tarns: Easedale Tarn is the large tarn to the south of the fell. Codale Tarn is a good sized tarn to the south west of the summit. There are other minor unnamed tarns on the ridge to the west of Tarn Crag’s top.

Waterfalls: Cascades in Sour Milk Gill, the beck which emanates from Easedale Tarn.
