If you thought you’d done the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, maybe re-think. Join Craig on THE Ingleton Challenge –
Yorkshire’s Three Peaks form a triangle and cover a distance of 29.6 miles when tackled from Ingleton.
The route begins at Ingleton’s Community Centre where there is plenty of parking. A short walk up the road leads you to Fell Lane and the beginning of the route up Ingleborough. The route to the summit is approximately 3.5 miles with an elevation gain of 2,339ft. Ingleborough’s summit has a long broad plateau and on clear days it definitely worth pausing to take in the stunning views. From the summit the route heads down to Horton-In-Ribblesdale where there are public toilets and a couple of public houses.
Leaving Horton-In-Ribblesdale the route then tackles Pen-y-ghent, the smaller of the Three Peaks standing at 694m/2277ft. There is a bit of a scramble towards the top followed by a lovely paved path to the summit. Once at the summit pop through the hole in the wall and follow the Pennine Way sign – Horton in Ribblesdale. From here the route is then signposted Yorkshire 3 Peaks – High Birkwith. Eventually the route meets the B4679 – turn right onto the road and continue until reaching Ribblehead viaduct. Be aware, this road is extremely busy at weekends with walkers, cyclists, motorbikes and cars.
At Ribblehead you will find a mobile tea van for refreshments. Whernside whilst being the tallest of the Three Peaks at 736m (2415ft) is, you will be pleased to hear, the easiest to climb. Once at the summit there is a 3.5 downhill section bringing you out on the B6255 and opposite The Old Hill Inn Pub where walkers are always welcome (check website for opening times). At the road turn right and walk approximately 1.8 miles before turning right into Chapel-le-Dale. From here it is a flat/downhill 4 miles back to the village of Ingleton and the Community Centre.
Weekly Thursday evening. Have you climbed before? Are you looking to meet other climbers in a relaxed environment or grab a belay? Then come along to one of our Social Climbs.
Meet new climbing partners, advance your skills, have fun!

Men and women group advanced and intermediate. So everyone can enter. This competition is for anyone who would never even think of doing something like this. It’s for people to get together, support each other and have fun. There will be a t shirt, medal for all and trophies for the top 3 of the 4 categories. There will be food and drink so bring the family and have a great day supporting friends and family.
I’m hoping for a few games during and at the end of the competition to keep everyone entertained old and young.

Perfect for the absolute beginner to somebody that’s been climbing for years.
There is a qualified instructor on hand to help get everybody off the ground. Our Monday beginner session is still the best place to learn to climb.
All you need to do is come down to the wall, any time between 6-9pm for a beginner session with one of our instructors. All equipment supplied at no extra cost. Only £8.00 per adult. £6.00 for juniors. It is run as a drop in session so call down to the Climbing Wall (up by the side of Langfords in the village centre) & stay an hour or stay for the full three hours. It’s up to you.
Climbing is a great social event combined with exercise. If you have any questions, please contact Inglesport directly on 015242 41146
