Posted in Yarlside on April 17th, 2011 by David Murphy

17th April 2011 I set off on a 1hr 20 min drive to Howgill Fell this was around 2.5 miles east than my last wildcamp here at Fell Head I arrive at the Key Cross Inn at 11.20am I started hiking along a route I had pre-planned and started on the wrong path again.

After a hard slog alone the gorge of Backside Beck I started to climb up to Kensgriff you can see me on the summit (below) then a hard trek to Yarlside where I setup my wildcamp.
