Yoke

Overview
Height: 2,309 Feet - 706 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 438 067
Area: Far Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Far Eastern

Yoke is the best known as the southern outpost of the III Bell ridge leading up to High Street from Garburn Pass, and is usually dismissed as a dull unattractive mound. As seen from Troutbeck, this seems a quite accurate assessment, but the Kentemere Flank is very different, abounding in interest.
