We visit the three highest peaks in Yorkshire. Ingleborough at 723m, Whernside at 728m and finally Pen-y-Ghent at 691m. The total distance walked is 47km/29 miles and 5,361ft/1634m of ascent, with the aim of completing this in less than 12 hours.
This is a 12 hour walking challenge and therefore is a long and physically demanding walk with good navigational skills required on some sections in poor visibility. You will need good advanced planning and the right skills to achieve this challenge within the time allowed. Bags of determination and months of training too. These are not the highest of the peaks in the UK but they can be pretty hostile in poor weather. The total distance walked is 47km/29 miles and 5,361ft/1634m of ascent. Compared to the “classic” three peaks route, this is 5miles longer, making it a real hard challenge to complete in under 12hrs
