Aid Crag
Aid Crag
"The gritty outcrops of the Ray Fell and the Ottercaps, which never attain much prominence in those Fells, are magnificently developed just north of the Loughs, forming the three great lines of crags known collectively as the Wannies, and individually, in order from north to south, as Aid Crag, the Lesser Wanny and Great Wanny. These grits dip south-east, and their surface slopes fairly easily in this direction; they show almost vertical scarps fringed with massive screes, facing west. Although high (1,060 feet) they have been over-ridden by foreign ice and this has left its trace in the shape of striations, on the edge of the Lesser Wanny, parallel to the scarp. There is also evidence that they have nourished native glaciers at the close of the Ice Age."
The Vasculum (1926).
