Ill Crag is a fell in the English
Lake District. By some counts it is the fourth highest peak in England, although many people, including Alfred Wainwright, consider it to be a subsidiary summit of Scafell Pike. Ill Crag overlooks Eskdaleand has splendid views across to Bowfelland Crinkle Crags.
It forms part of the
Scafellchain, and lies about 1 km east of Scafell Pike. Broad Craglies immediately to the west, between Ill Crag and the Pike.
Ill Crag may be climbed en route to Scafell Pike, via a path from
Esk Hause, but it is commonly passed by without going to the actual summit, which is rocky making progress slow. Ill Crag's summit is a few hundred metres to the south of the path from Esk Hauseto Scafell Pike.
Ill 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, although Wainwright does give it a page in the Scafell Pikechapter. It therefore does not qualify as a Wainwright, though it is a Hewitt.
