Sour Howes, Sallows & Troutbeck Tongue with Stephen. Parked near Church Bridge on the lane between the church & Troutbeck village. 84/130.ADT20/02/2018
From Troutbeck. Nice little walk but it was WINDY! Other people report that they had abandoned walks on the higher fells. Up the South ridge and back via the North ridge which still had snow so not as boggy as it might have been.apshepherd15/02/2018

Not quite as easy as expected from the lower Kirkstone Pass road (alt 295m). The two rivers were impassable owing to heavy rain. Had to start off at the bridlway, following it until it turned south east. Here headed across a wire fence straight downhill through the woods. There is a crossing across the river which is shallow enough to wade across. Continue along the riverbank to the bridge. From here a vague footpath heads upwards to the summit. 4.28km returned, 90 minutes.moorsman22/09/2017
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

With Baystones which looks ok on a map but the direct route has high walls unsuitable for climbing so an ascent nearly to High Great Knott before a gap in the wall allows a steep descent.A hot day!Brownie21/06/2017
