Black Crag - Pillar, with Scoat Fell behind

Scoat Fell is at the crossroads of a number of ridges between Wasdale and Ennerdale, its long summit plateau is crossed by the "Ennerdale Fence". To the northeast lies Pillar, the southwest Haycock, the southeast is Red Pike which is part of the Mosedale horseshoe, and on a short northeast spur is Steeple.

It can be walked as part of the Mosedale horseshoe from Wasdale, or part of a round encompassing Pillar along the ridge to Haycock from Ennerdale Water. The Youth Hostels at Gillerthwaite or Black Sail being well placed to use a base.
