Classic Kentmere round from Kentmere Church via Garburn Pass, Yoke, Ill Bell, Froswick, Thornthwaite Crag, High Street, Mardale Ill Bell, Harter Fell, Kentmere Pike and Shipman Knotts. Time 6 1/2 hours. Walked with dog. Weather fine and sunny for first half of walk. Mist came down whilst on Harter Fell around 1.45pm. Remained dry though. A wonderful walk ... mostly grassy ridges though boggy in places and rocky on Ill Bell and Froswick.jamessteel10025/10/2016

Round from Mardale Head Mardale Ill Bell Harter Fell Branstree Corpse RoadNorthender06/05/2016
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
