Like the sound of completing the Yorkshire three peaks?
How about a more leisurely pace , involving a Wild Camp and spread over two consecutive days?
We will visit the three highest peaks in Yorkshire. Pen-y-Ghent at 691m, Whernside at 728m and finally Ingleborough at 723m. The total distance walked is 37.5km/24 miles and 5,361ft/1643m of ascent), however, unlike the 12hour challenge version, we will complete the 3 peaks over 2 consecutive days.
