Hi-Vis Paint on Pen y Ghent

I've had a recent email from a contact (thanks Marnie) who reports that the initial 'scramble' bit up Pen y Ghent (in Section 03 of the route guide from Horton) now has a trail of Hi-Vis yellow paint to indicate the way. Can't get up there till early June myself so if anyone could provide a photo be...

Re: Starting Point

Hi Geoff, went past the Station Inn + the Blea Moor/Gauber Road junction today at approx 3pm and there were cars parked all over the place, including a couple on the little bit of gravel opposite the pub and six (I estimated correct) in the small parking place near the cattle grid.

'The Guide', The Website & the Forum

As you might expect I get a regular number of email requests for copies of the latest version of 'The Guide'. A number of these requests assume that the Website & Forum are administered by myself (Mac.Hawk). Just to make things very clear I want to make it plain that I do not administer the website ...

Amended (late) April 2015 versions of 'The Guide'

Re-walked the whole route over the 18th & 24th of April & the amended (late) April 2015 versions of 'The Guide' are now available. They contain minor changes to the January 2015 version - a broken waymarker post near High Birkwith has been replaced (many thanks Manny for this information) and the YD...

Re: Starting Point

Hi Geoff, you can't generally park on the road immediately by the pub, the road's not wide enough to park on. However, a little way beyond the pub (100 yards or so), heading towards the Blea Moor/Gauber road T-junction and just after a cattle grid is a parking space on the right for about half a doz...

'The Guide' - an enforced hiatus!

It is with great regret that I have to announce that due to a foot injury updates to 'The Guide' beyond the January 2015 version are unlikely in the immediate future. Of course the route of 'The Challenge' varies little over the years but the YDNPA maintain the footpaths/route and do make changes fr...

Re: Three Peaks Souvenir Map

Firstly, I like the map. If you're thinking of retailing it I think it needs a few extra bits and bobs. I'd suggest spot height-ing each peak and maybe a few others in the area covered. It would be a good idea to identify Ribblehead and Chapel le Dale too (not everyone starts/finishes at Horton). If...

Re: The 3 Peaks Challenge in the Winter Months

Many congratulations for getting round in a little over 10 hours, especially in winter and via 'The Bog'. I would also congratulate you in going well equipped, most important if undertaking the challenge in the winter months. Just to clarify something in your entry that people who are not familiar w...
