Eweleap Scar
Eweleap Scar
The main crag-forming rock is limestone, being much harder and more resistant to erosion than the other members of a typical Yoredale cyclothem, sandstone, shale, and occasionally thin coal seams. The sandstone is well seen in the bed of Blakethwaite Gill where, having been eroded, forms blocks and cobbles, whilst limestone tends to dissolve into the acidic peaty water.
