Yet more CRO rescues!

Yet more CRO rescues (see https://cro.org.uk/all-news/) in the last fortnight of people unprepared or not realising the difficulty of the walk especially this late in the year when the light is limited.

'The Guide'

I've had a few requests for copies of 'The Guide' recently, something that I was quite surprised at, and whilst that's all well and good people should be aware that these have not been updated since 2016/2017 and some of the information may be out of date (e.g. the YDNPA Car Parking charges at Horto...

Re: Merrel Hiking Shoes

Actually the shoes currently (last day of March 2019) have a rating of 4.4, not 4.9, on Amazon UK (where the initial posting link is to) and personally I'm with Three Peaks on this as I much prefer a walking/hiking boot to a shoe.

Update to the Whernside descent repair appeal

Well, as you will see from the web-link below the financing of the repair to the Whernside 'staircase' has gone to

(see also viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1045)

Re: 3 Peaks over 2 days in January

Personally I'd just book an overnight stay for your first night in either Ingleton or Settle where you have good options to eat out on Day 1 evening. On Day 1 park up in the YDNPA car park in Horton-in-Ribbledale and follow the 3 Peaks route up the 'nose' of Pen-y-ghent, similarly descend along the ...
