A full day walk a part of a small group to climb Ingleborough. At 723 metres above sea level, this is the second highest mountain in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The route we take from the village of Clapham was described by Wainwright as ‘The finest of all routes up Ingleborough.’ It avoids the busy ‘3 Peaks’ paths. We walk through the privately owned Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail which has several points of interest along the route. We then enter the spectacular ravine of Trow Gill, and we take a look at the famous Gaping Gill where a stream cascades into a large underground chamber. Then it’s onward and upward to the summit of Ingleborough. If it’s a clear day there are amazing views from the summit plateau.
The distance is about 10 miles/16km with about 730 metres of ascent. Proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing are essential.
