A Few Facts About Black Crag - Mickleden

Location -
Black Crags - Mickleden is a Birkett fell which overlooks Mickleden and is on the ridge route between Rossett Pike and the Stake Pass. Buck Pike (1,988 feet) and Black Crags (1,929 feet) are considered to be part of Rossett Pike by most writers although this view is not universal with Black Crags having enough re-ascent to qualify as a separate hill by some measures.

An area of Moraines -
The Mickleden flanks of Rossett Pike and Black Crags rise above an array of green moraines to a tier of crags running below the ridgeline. In addition to Black Crag there is Rossett Crag set just beneath the summit.
