Walking Log ... Walks including "Wolfhole Crag"


Wolfhole Crag
Fourth highest of the Bowland fells, and also one of the most central, Wolfhole Crag is the eastern arm of Ward's Stone. Its location, the lack of proper footpaths to the summit and the sometimes horribly boggy peat hags surrounding the fell make it a rarely visited place. If you are seeking total isolation there's a good chance you will find it here.

If you do decide to fight the conditions and expend the effort to reach the top of Wolfhole Crag you will be greeted by an interesting rocky summit strewn with boulders. You will also be rewarded with great views over much of the Bowland wilderness, and at times the Dales and Ingleborough can appear incredibly close by. Beware the peat bogs though ... during wet periods they can be incredibly dangerous.
