IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete the Participation Statement, here, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. (If you have recently completed this, you do not need to complete it again.)
Not many people realise this, but there are actually 2 Harter Fells in north west England. There's the more famous one in the Lake District, overlooking Hardknott Pass, then there's this one tucked away in the north eastern corner of the Howgills.
From the centre of Ravenstonedale we will head south east to gain access to the Access Land on the northern slopes of Harter Fell, before heading south to the summit at 521m. We will descend over Little Harter Fell, down to cross the road and visit the waterfall at Gais Gill.
From the waterfall we will ascend Adamthwaite Bank to 481m, where we will then follow a horseshoe of summits over Grere Fell (544m), Green Bell (605m), Knoutberry (529m) and Knott (465m), after which we will descend back down into the village via Thornthwaite.
COVID-19 – IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:
- Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
- All are required to practice social distancing – staying 2m (not 1m) apart at all times, including the lunch stop.
- Unfortunately, there won’t be any planned pub / café stops en route or at the end, and please don’t share sweets or snacks with others – we’re sorry!
- Please bring your own hand sanitising gel for your own use throughout the day. Use of face coverings is at your own choice, but please bring one with you just in case it's needed.
- Each person should only attend one OutdoorLads event a week. (Leaders excepted on events if they are leading.)
- On walks, one person to hold open gates and allow everyone to walk through – so minimising surfaces that multiple people touch.
- Be aware that opportunities for toilet stops may be minimal if facilities are closed.
- Please, please cancel at your earliest opportunity if you are unable to attend or are unwell, so that we can allow others to take up these valuable event spaces.
- Much as it's difficult - no handshakes or hugs!
COVID-19: Events Participation Statement
OutdoorLads draws your attention to the fact that travelling and being away from home increases the risk of receiving and transmitting Coronavirus, whilst it is present in the UK. You are likely to choose not to participate in OutdoorLads events whilst there is a risk of Coronavirus transmission. However, should you choose to participate in OutdoorLads events whilst the risk is present, you must be aware of and follow the law and government guidelines, both when travelling to and from events as well as when participating in events.
Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not experts, do not need to be experts, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as experts, but are amateurs with some experience in the event type and who are happy to impart their knowledge. Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient.
By signing up to and attending an OutdoorLads event, you are confirming that you have read, understood and accept the content of this statement.

What to bring
Face covering: in case you need to go in any local shops
Boots: A good pair of waterproof hiking boots will be essential for the walk, as we will be crossing some difficult and sometimes boggy terrain. Please make sure your boots are in good condition.
Waterproof Over Trousers: Waterproof over trousers are essential in keeping the legs dry in any significant rainfall, I hope we won't need them at this time of year, but pack them just in case.
Waterproof Jacket, a warm fleece, a decent quality wicking base layer and windproof walking trousers
Food & drink
You will need a packed lunch, which we will eat along the way, and 2 litres of water. There are no shops in the village or on the walk route, so you will need to bring everything you need with you.
