Wainwright Guidebook: Two

Shipman Knotts is of moderate altitude andwould have called no more than a brief comment that it is a shoulder of Kentmere Pike had it not earned for itself a separate chapter by reason of the characteristic roughness of its surface. Rocky outcrops are everywhere on the steep slopes persisting even in the woods of Sadgill, although these seldom attain the magnitude of crags.
