Walla Crag - 12/06/2015
Walla Crag's summit and superb view across Keswick
What Wainwright said:

"Keswick's inner circle of lesser fells deserve more than the name of foothills, each having strong individual characteristics, a definite and distinctive appearance, and a natural beauty all of its own. Among these is Walla Crag".

Walla Crag is a popular short walk from Keswick. The crag is the terminal cliff on a short ridge running north west from Bleaberry Fell, dropping about 400 ft from the plateau above.

The top is marked by a large cairn and gives fine views over the islands of northern Derwentwater and the Vale of Keswick. There is also a clear line of sight down Borrowdale to the high fells.
