Lake District Wild Camp

2-day Mountain Expedition - Lake District, March 2011
Kentmere Horseshoe

2-day mountain expedition around the Kentmere Horseshoe.

Route - set off lunchtime Monday; returned lunchtime Tuesday. 4 people (me, Chris, Giles and Stu).

DAY ONE - Kentmere, Kentmere Reservoir, Ill Bell NE ridge (very steep in places), Ill Bell, ridge north to High Street, Nan Bield Pass, descend to Small Water (just as it was going dark). Low cloud and dense mist, cool but gusty winds.

DAY TWO - Mardale Ill Bell E ridge (Piot Crag), High Street, Ill Bell ridge all the way to Garburn Pass and return. Decided to re-walk this section as the mist/clouds lifted and we wanted to see the views and also experience this spectacular, long ridge walk.
