About trip

Setting off from Horton in Ribblesdale and walking via Brackenbottom is viewed as the classic ascent of Penyghent. Quite rightly too for the walk begins as a gentle climb with Penyghent often hidden from view until Penyghent appears in view on Brackenbottom Scar. The southern profile of Penyghent stands awesome and inspirational in view with two distinct short steep climbs becoming increasingly obvious as one draws closer. This part is justice enough to be the ultimate Penyghent route. And once on the summit the views are spectacular with the remaining three peaks colleagues Whernside and Ingleborough clearly visible to the north east. And look down from the Whernside eyeline to walk from the summit to Hull Pot, the largest natural hole in England. A walk with a wow factor.
