Started 9am, clear skies but wet underfoot after non-stop rain yesterday.( Parked at Troutbeck). Better on reaching Garburn Road. Short climb onto summit ,gazed over Windermere, then progressed along ridge southwards.Peak Rambler13/09/2019
Troutbeck Chapel -> Garburn Road (briefly) -> Sour Howes -> Sallows -> Garburn Road -> Troutbeck Chapel Rainy, misty day, both of which more or less lifted to allow us to visit both peaks and the connecting ridge. All of the family enjoyed the very boggy ground, with Freddy ending up face down at one point. A world-record breaking number of Oreos saw the party with enough energy to make it back down.Ham and Skate31/08/2019

Solo day from Troutbeck. Had to park up in the village as it was Sunday and the Church goers took up all of the parking in the area I wanted to start from... anyway. From Troutbeck Village taking the bridal track to cross the A592 onto Hagg Bridge then across to the FB and up to Troutbeck Tongue. Up and onto Froswick, Ill Bell and Yoke (love that stretch, done it many times on different walks). Then onto bag Sallows and Sour Howes dropping down the grassy slopes to the Garburn Road and back to the car. Chilly at times in the easterly wind.Butty25/11/2018

Could see this being a fun hill on a nicer day. Fun descent to the bridleway to the west. Possibly could have headed south west instead following the wainwright route.MrChris198002/06/2018

From Kentmere church, up and down Garburn Pass.Fell_wanderer06/11/2017
After driving up from work on Friday we had the intention to do the High street range so stopped Friday after having a drink in the Crown and Mitre stayed on Mardale carpark that night at Haweswater. Woke up on Saturday to very bad weather so made the decision to move inwards and find something smaller. After driving the amazing Shap road and stopping at a burger van we decided on the Kentmere horseshoe. Parking by the church at Kentmere we headed towards Yoke. But with the still bad weather the slow pace we decided to just do Sallows and Sour Howes. From the cross roads at Garburn pass we headed straight up to Sallows. No views sadly..Scotty 2 Hotty23/09/2017
Lovely walk up from Troutbeck Bridge on the Kentmere path. From Sour Howes we went onto Sallows and then long walk back before heading out again to bag Troutbeck Tongue. No nice way off from Sallows that we could find.jpitches17/09/2017

Walked to from Sour Howes, rocky outcrop on summit. Lots of path options to continue to other fells or head back to the start point next to Troutbeck. Decent views of Windermere, the Fells to the west and north, the Langdale Pikes, along with the Troutbeck Tongue and surrounding Fells.Chris Mac24/06/2017
