Notes: One of the best (and one of the most tiring) walks I have done for a couple of years. The weather was superb, sandwiched in between two awful days, no rain, no wind and sun most of the day. The ascent of Ingleborough was simple, the long gradient makes it an easy walk out of Horton, the views from the top were sublime. The tranquillity on the summit smashed by a loud party of 3-peakers. The ascent of Whernside was as tough as ever, a relentless series of calf-bursting climbs and three false summits. The views again were awesome - across to Lakeland and Cross Fell. The descent via the Tarns is great and the path down into Dent beats the one that skirts the slopes of Great Coum hands-down. A long lunch in Dent made for a late arrival in Sedbergh and the last few miles hurt quite a lot! Great days walking though!
