Swarth Fell (681m) & Wild Boar Fell (708m)

12 mile route from Cotegill Bridge across the Settle & Carlisle Railway (Mallerstang), up onto Swarth Fell and Wild Boar Fell. The walk was part of a NNAS Gold Assessment navigation skills course. We navigated off the summit of Wild Boar Fell in the dark, hence no photos after the summit shots!
