From Troutbeck with Pops. Showery but finally some sunshine. Yoke, Ill Bell & Froswick. 10.15 miles 2643 ft elevationnell158329/03/2024
A surprising morning walk with L from the door in Troutbeck with the poor forecast changed to dry and fair, clear & windless! Unheard of! Probably explained why we saw no-one. T -shirt weather for much of the long ascent from Limefit. Then over The the more prominent Ill Bell and lesser Froswick, Down Scott's Rake path and enjoyed lovely Upper Troutbeck again - some buds out on the hedges, but no lambs yet. Meanwhile awful news today that 25 million people in Sudan face starvation -14 million of them children, then there's Gaza, and Ukraine etc etc.Chris Pearson20/03/2024
From Troutbeck Bridge - Sour Howes, Sallows, Yoke, Ill Bell, Froswick, Troutbeck Tongue. With R. On good path for pretty much the entire walk.Dan Baddeley06/01/2024
The Kentmere Horseshoe from Kentmere in an anticlockwise direction visiting 9 Wainwrights: Shipman Knots, Kentmere Pike, Harter Fell, Mardale Ill Bell, High Street, Thornthwaite Crag, Froswick. Ill Bell, and Yoke. A fine and partially sunny Boxing Day, with very fine snow showers. Certainly a nice change from heavy rain and storm force winds of recent days! 22km with 1200m ascent, taking 7h 40m.silverwolf_alan26/12/2023
From Troutbeck Bridge: Sour Howes, Sallows, Yoke, Ill Bell, Froswick, Troutbeck Tongue, then a rather rough and tiresome fight across to Baystones before dropping back to Troutbeck. 21km, 5h 50. Stunningly clear and cold.Rockdoctor15/10/2023
Heading south back to Troutbeck. Had to touch the cairn of course despite a chap sitting right next to it. He was the last of this morning's wave of clockwise Kentmere Horseshoeists. The glorious and better than forecast sun which had graced our morning was suddenly replaced by our old friend permagloom which came sweeping in to join the party for anything above 400 metres.Chris Pearson09/10/2023

With L. On the return to Kentmere. Great to be back in the Lakes again having just moved to Kendal doing what we like best - long steep climbs up and running downhill along the ridges Despite the clouds of flies in the humid warm calm. Grateful for energy drinks. Sore quads getting used to being back in the hills. Garburn Pass not a nice surface to descend on down to Kentmere - loose stones.Chris Pearson05/09/2021
1/6 Birthday walk - Up to Yoke (revisit) via Dubs Reservoir, then down to Rainsborrow Crag and drop down contouring round to Castle Crag, Piked Hawes, Rowantree Knotts and Scale Knotts. Interesting picking route over all of those. Back over Garburn Pass. Five nice Synges but a bit late for birthday tea - oops .nickywood103/09/2021
