  Crag and tail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Abbey Craig, a crag with tail near The University of Stirling.
Crags are formed when a glacier or ice-sheet passes over an area that contains a particularly resilient chunk of rock (often a granite plug or other volcanic structure).
Frequently the crag serves as a partial shelter to softer material in the wake of the glacier, which remains as a gradual fan or ridge forming a tapered ramp (called the tail) up the leeward side of the crag.

In general, abseiling should be confined to areas of crag that are not usually climbed on or to crags that do not provide good routes.

 Jónas Hallgrímsson: Horn Crag
Commentary: Horn Crag (Hornbjarg) is a spectacular sea-cliff on Horn Strand (Hornstrandir) in remote northwest Iceland.
Later the eagle that soars up to stare into the sun (i.e., to gaze at truth) was frequently used as a symbol for both the rapture of spiritual contemplation and the scrutiny of scientific investigation.
"Horn Crag," despite its surface simplicity, is complex in its suggestiveness, and its ironies are ambiguous (and ultimately opaque).
