With plenty of holiday to use I headed for the South Lakes on Friday.
Initially driving through some heavy rain to get to Kentmere and the very narrow roads there. The usual car parking place was taken for a Church event but a helpful guy told me that a farmer had opened up a small car park for £3 for the day round the corner so I parked there.
I fancied a change from the usual round as I had only last done it back in 2014 so opted to walk through the valley to the Reservoir and take on Ill Bell's steep North East ridge (which is why I thought it may be worth putting this report live). This give me a better impression of the Kentmere valley on the whole.
The weather got better during the day with some good spells of sunshine. Ended up catching up the guy who helped me park near Harter Fell and we walked the rest of the round together.
