Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

by: Paul Shorrock
The Three Peaks of the Yorkshire Dales provide some of the finest walking in Britain. With its combination of high peaks and stunning scenery, the area is rightly popular with outdoor types, from leisure walkers to super-fit fell runners. It always seems to follow that when you have a mix of high places and human beings, sooner or later someone will come up with an idea of a challenge of some kind. With the Three Peaks of Pen y Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough the solution was simple - do them all in one walk!

If you are new to walking in the Yorkshire Dales, then you're in for a treat. Initially the book describes the peaks one at a time, giving you a chance to savour the experience, as well as getting to know the area. This is done in six walks described in detail including OS 1:25,000 scale mapping. Prior to this the book provides a comprehensive introduction including geology and landscape, natural history, human influence, clothing and equipment, navigation, getting fit, planning strategy and tactics for the day of the challenge.

The six walks are:
Pen y Ghent from Horton in Ribblesdale - 5.8 miles
Whernside from Ribblehead - 7.8 miles

Yorkshire Three Peaks Route Guide

Yorkshire Three Peaks Route Guide

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, climbing Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent and returning to the starting point in a continuous circuit, is a tough undertaking. The distance is 24 miles with a total ascent of 1,600 metres. There is no official starting point, though the most popular route is the one shown in this map-guide.

Many choose to start in Horton, but Ribblehead, with its early morning train service, makes a better starting point. Whernside is climbed first, then Ingleborough, leading down to Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Pen-y-ghent follows, then there is a seven-mile trek over Horton Moor to finish back at Ribblehead.

The full-colour guide folds out to provide a double-sided A3 page layout showing a map of the route with text boxes giving specific instructions. The map is based upon Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale mapping, but with superfluous information removed for route clarity. Also included is a table giving route section distances and times, both individual and cumulative.

Panels give details of alternative circular routes for each of the peaks, as follows:
Pen-y-ghent circular from Horton-in-Ribblesdale - 6.6 miles
Whernside circular from Ribblehead - 8.1 miles
Ingleborough circular from Ribblehead - 9.9 miles
