Piers Gill and Broad Crag
|Range:||Lake District Southern Fells|
|Summit:|| 3,064 feet NY218075 |
Broad Crag is one of very few fells in the Lake District not to be given a separate chapter in Alfred Wainwright's celebrated guide books and therefore been left off that august category of fells known as "Wainwrights". Wainwright considered Broad Crag to be a subsidiary top of Scafell Pike. However, by its height, rising above 3,000 feet, Broad Crag is classed as a "Furth Munro".
Whatever classifications men may write it into, Broad Crag's grandeur and height are compelling.
