Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge - time 9h 8m - 25miles - did on my own. Chapel le Dale (Start) -> Ingleborough -> Horton in Ribblesdale -> Pen-y-Ghent -> Ribblehead -> Whernside -> Chapel le Dale (Finish). Decent weather conditions. Walk was ok - long stretches between each summit, particularly PYG to Whernside. PYG was very busy - lots of walkers. The path from PYG to Ribblehead was also very boggy.scholesy27/08/2017
