Itinerary with Global Adventure Challenges 

We set off early morning from Horton-in-Ribblesdale to begin our adventure! Our first peak, Pen-y-ghent (694m / 2,276 ft) is just under 3 miles away, so it won’t be long until we enjoy our first taste of success.

After conquering our first peak we then descend and push on to our next peak which is the highest of all three, Whernside, approximately 7.5 miles further. We then start our ascent to our third and final peak – Ingleborough (723m / 2,237 ft) which is approx. 5 miles further on.

Standing at the summit of Ingleborough will evoke a real sense of achievement and after a few victory photos we push on with our descent as we have not finished our challenge just yet! We take the 5 and 1/2 mile trek back to Horton-in-Ribblesdale, where we enjoy a glass of fizz.
