Guided Walk – Pen y Ghent

Pen y Ghent at dawn - one of our most popular guided walks in the Yorkshire Dales and one of the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks

Pen y Ghent at dawn

Pen y Ghent (694m) is the smallest of the Yorkshire Three Peaks but many consider it the most dramatic, with two short scrambling sections to be overcome. Its steep sides make it look like an impregnable fortress when seen from Horton in Ribblesdale. Like Ingleborough and Whernside, Pen y Ghent is composed chiefly of limestone. This is the type of rock that we associate most closely with the Yorkshire Dales. However, all three peaks have a ‘cap’ of gritstone which is immediately noticeable when you reach it. On our guided walks, we explain what has caused this. On the flanks of  Pen y Ghent, and even visible from near the summit, is the collapsed cavern of Hull Pot which is well worth visit.
