Sergeant's Crag is a fell in the English Lake District and is an
intermediate height on the ridge between the Langstrath and Greenup
valleys in the Central Fells.
As the spur falling north from High
Raise gradually narrows, the ground becomes rockier, until a sudden turn
toward the east throws up a knuckle of crag.
The main face is on
the north western flank, cut by a gully, with the lower slabs providing
the majority of the rock climbing. Bull crag is also on this flank, a
little to the south.
From Sergeant's Crag the ridge drops
slightly before reaching its terminus at Eagle Crag.
Crag has well defined boundaries with Langstrath to the west and the
gentler eastern slopes falling to Greenup Gill. Blea Rock is a
conspicuous boulder at the foot of the Langstrath slopes.
crag top is partly hemmed in by the stone wall, a cairn resting on a
rock platform. Bowfell and Esk Pike can be seen along Langstrath, with
other high Southern Fells visible over Glaramara.
High Raise and
Ullscarf obstruct the eastward view, but there is a fine display of the
North Western and Northern Fells.
A stone wall runs along the ridge from Eagle
Crag, the accompanying path being the usual route of ascent. This
becomes indistinct as the ground broadens toward High Raise.
crag can also be outflanked, climbing without paths from further south
along either valley.
