Ascent Trip Report

The classic Kentmere Horseshoe consisting of 8 Wainrights, starting at the Church in Kentmere at 7.30am.

Very windy conditions (45+ mph) and a lot of low lever cloud to start with. Conditions Improved around 10am and finally got some views before the rain starting on our decent.

The start of this walk was so much more exciting then the end, with Kentmere Pike onwards being a boggy washout with little to see.

Billed as around 13 miles on a map but my watch recorded a total of 16.2 for our round.
