Nestled within the Pennine Range of the Yorkshire Dales National Park lie the iconic three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Your challenge is to summit all three peaks in 12 hours.

Your first summit in the early morning will see you ascend 2,227 feet to the top of Pen-y-ghent, but there will be no hanging around, as you trek on through to midday and your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 2,415 feet. Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 2,372 feet to the top of Ingleborough, with awe-inspiring views across the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.
