Walk: Sadgill, Shipman Knotts, Kentmere Pike, Harter Fell, Gatescarth Pass, Sadgill
Start Point: Sadgill Grid Ref: NY 583 057
Distance:  8 miles Ascent:  2,300 feet
Weather: Sunny and warm, windy on top
Accompanied by:

Marie, Andrea, Gill & Shep

Comments: An easy walk with some spectacular views of Haweswater, but the route down Gatescarth Pass is stony underfoot and can become a little tedious. However, we were treated to the spectacle of children on a ghyll scrambling trip at Cleft Ghyll.


Scroll down to see photos of the walk

Climbing towards Shipman Knotts we can just see Kentmere reservoir


Longsleddale valley, again from the path to Shipman Knotts


Ill Bell, Froswick and Thornthwaite Beacon beyond the Nan Bield Pass


Shep brings yet another stick but this one is a little on the big side
