Ribblehead to Horton via W & I & 'The Guide'

Walked Ribblehead to Horton today via W & I with the following to report ............... Well nothing much on Whernside, there's a little more flagging on the descent to Bruntscar since my last visit in Oct 2015. The ascent of Ingleborough has nothing new of note. Near the summit plateau of Inglebor...
