Pen-y-ghent

Description:
Usually the first of the Yorkshire Three Peaks climbed, Pen-y-ghent is also probably the busiest fell in the Yorkshire Dales. It has some good views towards Ingleborough and Whernside to the west and Fountains Fell to the east. Pendle Hill is also another notable high point to the far south west. Pen-y-ghent is a beautiful fell that takes some beating at any time of year.
