WOs 67,68,69,70 and 71. Bs 63. Early showers on first top, then a really nice day. Followed W's combined walk for Hugil Fell and Reston Scar with great views. After coffee in Staveley drove to end of lane for short ascent of High Knott - stile blocked and threat of legal action but .... Finally continued to Kentmere and did W's walk over Hollow Moor and Hollow Moor E. Top. Good path most of the way up but hard climb over tussocks to the summit and then very boggy down onto the bridleway, but the views up the Kentmere Valley compensated.BURGESS05/08/2017
