Three Peaks of Yorkshire. December 30th 2006. Distance - 26 miles. 14 walkers. Leader - Ralph Warman.

A tough winter walk from Horton in Ribblesdale covering the 26m circular of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside & Ingleborough. Completed the walk, with one dropping out at the bottom of Whernside. Conditions were tough with very strong winds all day and driving rain from midday onwards. The rain had turned to snow by the time we had got to the top of Ingleborough but thankfully it was still daylight, and the descent to Horton was relatively easy, although tiring.
