So named for the Yew trees once growing on its slopes, and its upturned boat hull shape. Of its two tops the southern is the highest.
Situated at the head of Wast Water it guards the entrance to Wasdale Head, and is usually the first hill tackled on the Mosedale Horseshoe. Whilst it can be climbed with little if any scrambling most ascents involve some through crags each end of its ridge.
