Green Crag Slack is a strip of land about a mile and a half in length below Green Crag and Woofa Bank on the northeast of Rombald's Moor. There are many carved stones within this area including the Idol Stone and the Pancake Rock as well as the damaged remains of cairns and settlement or enclosure walls although most are so mutilated as to be unrecognisable. The grid reference given is for the large unnamed stone shown above (PRAWR 325) , it stands next to the track that leads up to Green Crag and has several cups, one with a clear ring, and angular grooves - some of which may be natural.
