Walking Log ... Walks including "Thornthwaite Crag"


Thornthwaite Crag
Thornthwaite Crag is the western shoulder of High Street, its parent fell. It is best known for the 14 foot tall summit pillar, Thornthwaite Beacon. This fell is the northern point of the popular Ill Bell ridge, but also throws out a ridge of its own northwards which terminates in Gray Crag. On its eastern flank is the fantastic dip of Threshthwaite Mouth which seperates it from Caudale Moor.

Thornthwaite Crag is the 4th highest Wainwright in his Far Eastern Fells section, and 44th highest overall.
