Harter Fell & Hard Knott
By Neil Haslewood
24th September 2009

Two Southern Wainwright Fells completed today on this walk. It was overcast all day and rained from time to time sometimes quite heavy. Starting from the bottom of the Hard Knott Pass near Brotherikeld I took the path over Jubilee Bridge to Harter Fell. When I arrived at the summit there were two walkers already there. The cloud covered the summit so there was not much to see. However while I was there the cloud cleared giving views in most directions. I then continued across wet ground to the summit of the Hard Knott Pass before ascending to Border End and Hard Knott summits. The rain was quite persistent while at Hard Knott Summit. I descended via Mosedale and Eskdale back to Brotherikeld. Although it was a dull and wet day it was still a enjoyable one.
