Mardale circuit. 2 of 9thekirkie pirate12/10/2023
From lunch at Thornthwaite Beacon with L after a sweltering ascent in the heatwave of our favourite climb - 500m straight up the steep lonely east ridge of Ill Bell from Kentmere Reservoir. Then wonderfully off-piste straight down through the crags at the Head of Kentmere to visit the source of the R Kent and its upper course where we skinny dipped to cool off in one of its many pools -delightful in this rare Sept heatwave. Lovely walk down craggy Kentmere far from the crowds on the ridges. It was so hot we had to cover up to not burn.Chris Pearson05/09/2023
