Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk



A pause for breath going up Pen-y-ghent

Richard, Colin and Edward at the summit of Pen-y-ghent

An Ingleborough View from the top of Pen-y-ghent

Rich traversing the bog with Pen-y-ghent in the background

Edward strides on, while Rich spots the monkey cam

Colin looking cool in the shades

Edward sets the pace towards Whernside

Edward with the Ribblehead Viaduct and Whernside in the background

Colin and Rich reach Ribblehead

Rich makes mistake of asking me to hold his tea while he sorts his gaiters

A refueling stop going up Whernside

Looking back at the way up Whernside - Yorkshire's highest mountain

Edward approaching the Whernside ridge...Today it was blowing a force 10 gale!

The summit of wind swept Whernside. Everyone seeks refuge from the wind

Descending Whernside

Rich and Colin prepare for the final challenge - Ingleborough

Rich is first up the gruelling Ingleborogh staircase

Rich and Colin pose with the Ingleborogh trig point

Me and Colin pose too

Edward, Rich and Colin at the cold top

Colin demonstrates the wind strength...but it wasn't as severe as Whernside!

...and does an Angel of the North impression

We're off now, it's too cold to hand around

Descending Ingleborough

Finally, Pen-y-ghent comes into view, which means we are not far from Horton-in-Ribbledale

Ingleborough from Pen-y-ghent on another 3 peaks day

Rich and I at the Whernside summit on that other day
