Next we follow the ridge S & then SE to climb Kentmere Pike (730m / 2395ft.) then continue towards Goat Scar. The path then drops steeply S, over Shipman Knott (587m / 1925ft.) down to the Stile End Farm B.O.A.T. From there it's just a case of following the B.O.A.T. E & then N, past Sadgill Wood, back to Sadgill Farm.
