My guidebook for the Pennine Way said it was a short climb to the top and that is correct. It did not tell me that the wind was fierce at the top, that whilst climbing I would find myself not daring to look sideways or...More

A great afternoon walking - we took the red route up and be warned the last part is very steep! The view is worth it however and the scenery is stunning!

This is quite a challenging walk which requires some climbing to reach the top but the views make it all worthwhile. Noticed people of all ages on this walk so great for a family day out. Take at your own pace and enjoy the spectacular...More

A decent sized (about 700m) but approachable hill with good views from the top (if not cloudy!) and you can do it easily from Horton in Ribblesdale on a circular route that takes just a few hours. Nicely distinctive too - you can pick it...More

A lovely mountain to climb. Stunning scenery. The scramble at the top can be difficult but well worth it.

This is a truly iconic peak in Yorkshire with a Welsh name, all something of an enigma. Well worth the climb especially on a lovely day in April but weather will effect enjoyment.

Beautiful landscape, easily accessed by mutliple main roads and there is also an old railway adjacent to the trail so historic and natural landscapes available en route.

Had a great walk up Pen-y-Ghent yesterday in beautiful weather. Great views from the top and we called off at hull pot on the way down to see the waterfall which was running due to the recent rainfall. Shame a thoroughly enjoyable day was spoilt...More

Penny aged 6! (thoroughly enjoyed and not usually a walker). Nana aged 68 a bit out of practice. Myself, 32, last time I did this I was Penny's age. The best day!

I' d have thought that the best place to arrange to join up would be Horton in Ribblesdale. There is a car park and a cafe ( if open) where you could meet up.

I would agree, it is fine as I have seen kids go up there but if it gets windy then I would head back down as the scrabble near the top is on a corner and can be a bit hairy. Definitely worth going though. I will be taking... More
