Kentmere Village - Green Quarter - Shipman Knotts - Kentmere Pike - Harter Fell - Mardale Ill Bell - High Street - Thornthwaite Crag - Froswick - Ill Bell - Yoke - Garburn Pass - Kentmere Village

The weather was forecast to be a good day but in the end was quite cloudy. A dramatic walk on an excellent "Horseshoe". I plan to walk this again in good conditions - the views must be tremendous. Although it was over 13 miles in distance time just seemed to fly by.
