TR - Sour Howes and Sallows from Kentmere
« on: 12:57:20, 01/03/18 »
Today we walked up to Sour Howes and Sallows from Kentmere. It has been a few years since I was last up here and even though they are quite low and grassy they are lovely fells to walk.

Distance: 10.6km (6.58 Miles)
Ascent: 529m (1736ft)
Time: 4 Hours 7 Minutes

Full Report Here: http://www.lakedistrict-walks.co.uk/2018/January/30.01.2018_Kentmere.html



Shipman Knotts over Kentmere, the church at the bottom is where I parked today.



Kentmere Tarn.



A view of Windermere from the steep ascent up to Capple Howe.



From Capple How its a simple grassy walk to Sour Howes.



The summit of Sour Howes. No cairn on this one.



The path follows the wall to Sallows.

Thank you for looking! :)

Great photos Seferix, I've only done them going up from the other side.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

Nice TR Seferix and some superb phots.

I always feel very over-whelmed by Sour Howes from the car park at Troutbeck.

Cheers
