Lovely walk up from Troutbeck Bridge on the Kentmere path. On to 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

A fairly quick and easy hike, no features on main summit, path goes over it, we also went up the more pointed secondary summit opposite. Good views of Windermere, the Fells to the west and north (especially the Langdale Pikes) along with the Troutbeck Tongue and surrounding Fells.Chris Mac24/06/2017
