A decent length walk with Neal, Tony & Hannah. Weather was generally favourable although the clouds came in a little around Thornthwaite Cragg for an hour or so. Probably went off planned course after the final Wainwright at Shipman Knotts as we had Kentmere in our sights and took the most direct route.

Harter Fell (Mardale) is probably the least inspiring summit that i have visited to date.
