This route goes clockwise, up Clapham car park then left of St James Church and up toward Ingleborough Caves, then left and straight gentle up, then steady up stairs and slabs to Little Ingleborough. Continue across via top ridge to Ingleborough and left to summit. Views are as described - much worth it. Path down to Simon Fell provides great views too. However, unless continuing to B64179 or Horton-In-RIbbledale, the extra 4 1/2 miles from Simon Fell down to trail head did not feel time well spent Suggestion: After Simon Fell, cut back to below lower Ingleborough and return to trail head.

Aug 30, 2019. Clockwise up Clapham car park then left of St James Church up toward Ingleborough Caves, then left and straight gentle up, then steady up stairs and slabs to Little Ingleborough.

Conditions: Cloudy, very windy, warm below, bitter wind cool on peak. Decent visibility throughout hike. Drizzle at times. Def good hike.

Great walk with some more challenging climbs which are rewarded with some amazing views. We had every kind of weather on this walk with very little visibility at the top so go prepared. I noticed we could have shortened it slightly which might have been better for my 8 year old son as after climbing the mountain the route does get a bit flat and less exciting.

Great walk despite the weather. no viability at the top but this app helped amazingly! We didn't go out as wide on the suggested loop black round but glad we didn't as you are greeted with some great limestone formations to walk through.

My first mountain. A sharp incline early on and a long downhill section. I did this in preparation for the three peaks trail in June and it’s certainly given me a good idea of how difficult it will be. Great views!

Done as part of the 3 peaks challenge a deceiving accent across the fields and up the steps much harder than it looks. The zig zag steps up the face is by far the hardest part but feel great great once completed.
