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
