The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Long Crag - Greenup Edge - Coast to Coast Walk

Long Crag, Greenup Edge, Coast to Coast

Long Crag, as its name implies, is a long rocky outcrop sitting below Low White Stones, another but larger rocky outcrop on the north side of High Raise. Greenup Edge runs over High Raise, which separates Grasmere Common from the Langstrath Valley. The Coast to Coast path, coming from the Stonethwaite Valley, passes around Lining Crag and onto Greenup Edge, by-passing Long Crag. There is a wonderful view of Long Crag atop the huge hollow of gills forming the head of Greenup Gill, as seen from Lining Crag.

In the photograph below many gills can be seen, all collecting to form the Greenup Gill, which is joined by the Langstrath Beck at Smithymire Island at the foot of Stonethwaite Fell. The gills, in the centre of the image below are collectively known as the Black Gills. Further around the hollow the small hillocks, which are actually the tops of Bull Crag and some other crags, hover over the Langsthrath Valley.
