Whernside

Whernside is the highest point in North Yorkshire and the summit lies on the border with Cumbria.  In shape Whernside forms a long ridge, running roughly north-south.  Your route whilst on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge will see you pass through the famous Ribblehead viaduct to Brunscar and then ascend steadily towards the summit via High Pike, a shallow ridge south of the summit itself.

At 736m/2416ft it is always hoped that good clear weather will be the order of the day to allow the magical views that can be gained from this wonderful elevated position.
