Great Whernside

Date & Location

Kettlewell, North Yorkshire

Organiser’s Description

From Scabbate Gate, Kettlewell to the top of Great Whernside and back. The initial ascent is on grass following track and path through the fields uphill. Thence on to the fell and the terrain changes dramatically. First a rocky scramble over rough ground, followed by a short stretch of peat and bog with then a final steep ascent over rocky ground. At this point, round the cairn then it's anyway back to the start, either straight across the heather or back down the path. 4 miles, 1558ft, category AS.
