Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

The Station Inn

£65.00

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Ingleborough (724m) Whernside (736m) Pen Y Ghent (694m) Distance: 43 km Height gain: 1400 metres Challenge Duration: 12 hours max Meeting Point: The Station Inn, Ribblehead Nearest Station: Ribblehead Meet Time: 06:00 hrs Start Time: 06:30 hrs Break Stops: 2 Difficulty Level: Medium / Tough The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is one of England's most enjoyable and achievable walking challenges. It is perfectly situated in the Yorkshire Dales with great access via the M6 and A65. The challenge itself tackles the three great Yorkshire Hills of Whernside (736 m) Pen y Ghent (694 m) and Ingleborough (724 m). Collectively that gives 2154 metres of ascent with the peaks situated to create a continuous 25 mile loop that can be walked clockwise or anticlockwise. The landscape of the Yorkshire three peaks is incredibly beautiful with the lush green limestone dales contrasting with the wild windswept gritstone peaks and moors beyond. The traditional route for the Yorkshire Three Peaks begins and ends in Horton in Ribblesdale, however over recent years this has put a great strain on the village and its amenities. It is because of this that we choose to begin our challenge near Ribblehead viaduct and walk it in an anticlockwise direction such that the teams arrive in Horton in Ribblesdale, in the middle of the day and that's greatly reduce the impact on the residents of the village.

Trek up & over 12 Lake District mountains in 12 hours Distance: 34 km Height gain: 3085 metres Challenge Duration: 12 hours max Meeting Point: New Dungeon Ghyll, Langdale Nearest Station: Windermere Meet Time: 06:30 hrs Start Time: 07:00 hrs Break stops: Lunch break and multiple stops Difficulty Level: Medium/Hard This is a full on 12 hour mountain expedition in the Lake District starting and finishing at the New Dungeon Ghyll hotel in Langdale. The walk begins with a steep ascent up to Stickle Tarn and then on to Pavey Ark before heading around the north eastern rim of the Langdale Valley. Following this the mid-section of the walk takes you from Angle Tarn past the steep cliffs of Great End onto Sprinkling Tarn before embarking on the challenging corridor route up Scafell Pike. Once the summit of Scafell Pike is reached then the high rocky and craggy plateau over to Great End is traversed before heading eastwards to Esk Hause where a welcome rest is gained in the fantastic little dry stone wall shelter.It’s then a steep ascent up to Esk Pike and across to Bow Fell before dropping down to the rocky Crinkle Crags with the notorious bad step at the end. From here to view southwards and westwards over Mosedale towards Harter Fell and the Old Man of Coniston is absolutely wonderful. Pike o Blisco, the final summit at 705 m, can be seen with its perfectly formed pointed summit. From here it is about an hour back down through some wonderful scenery to the car park at hotel that you started from and a well earned rest.
