Dry sunny evening, a stiff breeze whilst on Rough Crag, but calming into the evening. ~16km. <BR><BR> Visit <A HREF='http://www.virtualmountains.co.uk/LakeDistrict/LakeDistrict.html' TARGET='_Blank'>http://www.virtualmountains.co.uk/LakeDistrict/LakeDistrict.html</A> for a 360 virtual tour taken on this hike.VirtualMountain12/05/2016
good way down to haweswater from high st.geoffreybbb12/05/2016
Yoke, Ill Bell, Froswick, High Street, Rough Crag, Harter Fell, Kentmere Pike. Parked the car at the village hall in Kentmere village (£3 voluntary donation). Up Garnburn Pass and then on to Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick. Only saw one person till I got on to main path up to High Street. Riggindale Crag was slow going but not a scramble. After dropping down to Blea Water, the climb up to Harter Fell via Small Water was hard work but since there was someone in front of me carrying their bike up (who I never caught up with) I couldn't complain. Excellent shelter at Nan Bield Pass. At the top of Harter Fell I met Cary and we walked down to Kentmere and gave him a lift to the YHA at Troutbeck where he'd started the day (he wouldn't have been home before 8 otherwise).tsharp03/05/2016

From Haweswater to Adams Seat, Little Harter Fell, Harter Fell, Kentmere Pike, Mardale Ill Bell, High Street and down Riggindale to Rough Knott and back to Haweswater. A strange combination but tidying up previously unclimbed tops. Riggindale is as nice as High Street is bland.clivevilla03/11/2015

from Mardale Head. a novelty climbing this as the target summit, having climbed all Wainwrights in 2012 this was one of the few that got away. a weekend of feeling pretty rough so was glad of the relative ease the climb up from The Nab provided. Could make out submerged walls in Haweswater. rocky cairn at top. descended to tarn and back to car.stig_nest11/07/2015
