Re: Scrambling/Climbing Perspective

Whilst the route does get a little steep in places there are no scrambles of the type that you will find in a guide book on scrambling. True, there are short stretches where I would instinctively start using hands, but nothing that should cause you concern. In winter it might be more of a problem, b...

Re: Can I take my dog on the 3 peaks route

The whole route is on public rights of way, so you can take a dog on a lead and plenty of people do.

Re: Any advice for a 3 peaks dropout please!

Its been really hot recently and a lot of people have struggled. Don't be so hard on yourselves. One thing immediately springs to mind - do a few short practice walks beforehand to test your equipment and legs. The other thing I would advise is to spread the walk over three days and do a peak each d...

Re: Rucksack size

I think with rucksacks its the weight rather than the size thats important. I often use a larger rucksack because its got a frame and I find it more comfortable than some of the smaller day sacks. But its a personal choice.

Re: Rucksack size

Re: 2 Peaks

That could be two circular walks both starting and ending in Horton, its easy to see the footpaths on the OS Map . But if its not too far for the first group I would consider following the three peaks route from the top of pen-y-ghent to Birkwith, then turning off that route and going to Selside. Fr...
