Walk 8: A Double Slice Of Wensleydale

Lovely Seat & Great Shunner Fell from Hardraw: I was slightly apprehensive as we parked up in Hardraw and waited for the others to arrive. I had some limited experience with Whernside and Ingleborough but today I was about to tackle the third highest peak in the Yorkshire Dales and I didn’t know what it may involve.

To be honest things looked exactly the same in Cumbria as they do in Yorkshire.

Walk 4: The Long Road Home

Ingleborough & Simon Fell from Ingleton: Today was the day we took on one of the big boys of the Yorkshire Dales. Ingleborough is the second highest peak and one most of us have had a little experience with in one form or another. In the past, five of today’s walkers had climbed Ingleborough whilst doing the Three Peaks of Yorkshire, albeit a long time ago. The three that hadn’t climbed it were nervous and slightly worried about their ability to do it…
