Hard going, pen-h-gent peak short but tough, the walk to whernside is a gradual hike but steep going back down with large stepping stones down, ingleborough accent was a diversion but still tough, boggy ground and 3/4 mile longer, it was a hot day doing this and a lot of water and steady pace is needed, there is a snack shop at the bottom of whernside, I’m not sure if this is just a seasonal thing or not but it’s a good place to replenish if you are running low on water or in need of food / snacks, the walk back from ingleborough peak seems to never end, its a hard day but on a clear day the views are amazing and it’s a tough challenge but worth it.

Amazing challenge, the last peak was the toughest with a steep scramble to the summit. The last leg to the finish seems never ending but a great sense of achievement makes it all worth while.

A rewarding challenge. Gets very busy. Easy to follow route but can be boggy in places, especially in winter. Good views at the top of each peak.
