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.
09:00-09:15 – Arrive at the meeting point. Probably in Ingleton.
09:30-17:00 – Summit the chosen peak, via a pre selected route. Careful attention will be paid to the choice of route, weather conditions and ground underfoot. We track pace and performance during these sessions, analysing your condition as we train on 2 peak.
17:00-17:30 – Return to base, de-kit, relax, have a brew and review how the jounrey has gone
A great way to enjoy the outdoors safely on this guided walk, learning more about the area too. Book your place now on one of these planned walks.
Due to the limestone that runs throughout the Yorkshire Dales, we have extensive cave systems across the area, making it one of the major areas for caving in the UK. However if you fancy staying above ground then a visit to one or two of the three highest peaks in Yorkshire is a wonderful day out. Starting in Ingleton this walk takes you up Ingleborough the highest flat top mountian in Europe at 723m. You’ll see some excellent examples of the surface limestone pavement with its “clints” (the limestone blocks) and “grikes” (the fissures between). The views from Ingleborough are superb, stretching as far as the west coast and the Lake District, and it is worth walking the short distance to the northern edge of the plateau for a fine view of the famous Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle Carlisle railway line.
One thing to bear in mind is that Ingleborough can have a cap of cloud. This can appear without warning on an initially clear day. The top of Ingleborough is a strangely disorientating place in cloud/mist. If the cloud does descend, there is a marked drop in temperature, so be prepared! Then depending on the group and the day a option to walk Whernside at 728m is the tallest of the three Yorkshire peaks, with it’s tarns at the higher levels and at the start it gives you the chance to get up close and personal to that masterpiece of Victorian engineering, the Ribblehead railway viaduct. Plus the views from the summit are also magnificent.
