[p]Hi - Paul Copley here. I am a Team Manager for Oaklea Trust in County Durham. As part of the #ProjectEdenside fundraising I am doing the famous Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge over the course of this summer starting on the 15th June with the Ingleborough ascent, this is 723 metres above sea level.[/p][p][b]Ingleborough[/b][/p][p]Height: 723m/2,372 feet[/p][p]Ingleborough is without doubt the most popular of all the hills in the Yorkshire Dales. It's rounded shape and flat top which was home to an ancient hill fort make it one of the real attractive hills in the park. The most used path (apart from the three peaks walk) is the one from Ingleton with the Clapham route a close second. The views from the top are truly stunning with a particularly marvellous view to Ribblehead Viaduct by looking north.[url=http://www.walkingenglishman.com/dales11.htm] [/url][/p][p]Then it will be Whernside 13th July 2019[/p][p][b]Whernside[/b][/p][p]Height: 736m/2,415 feet[/p][p]Despite being tagged as the unfashionable one of the Three Peaks, Whernside holds the glorious distinction of being the highest hill in the Yorkshire Dales. As one of the three peaks it is also one of the most popular hills and from the top there are great views to the east, north and west. Access can be made from various places and a climb up the king of the dales is well worth the effort.[url=http://www.walkingenglishman.com/dales01.html] [/url][/p][p]Finally - Pen-y-ghent on the 3rd August 2019[/p][p][b]Pen-y-ghent[/b][/p][p]Height: 694m/2,277 feet[/p][p]Pen-y-ghent is a marvellous hill. The profile is awesome from most aspects and if you approach it from Horton in Ribblesdale it resembles a sitting lion. And a lion of an ascent it is too for the final push to the top up its southern face is as close to a scramble as one will face in the Dales. Pen-y-ghent is a popular climb and is most busy in the morning for it is traditionally the first of the 'Three Peaks' challenge.
