About Scar Crags

One of the Coledale group of fells, Scar Crags is 672 m (2,205 ft) high and has a prominence of 55 m (180 ft). The southern flank falls sharply away into steep crags, hence the fell’s name. The northern flank slopes away more gently as it descends to Stoneycroft Gill.

The fell’s parent peak is Crag Hill (or ‘Eel Crag’ as it was formerly known) and it is listed as a Hewitt, a Nuttall and a Wainwright. The summit is grassy and features a small cairn, with views down into Rigg Beck and the surrounding fells. Scar Crags is rarely climbed in isolation; it is more often climbed by walkers following the Coledale Round, taking in the other nearby fells of Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail and Causey Pike.
