About this AdventureTo complete this route is to undertake one of the great outdoor challenges in the UK. It will be a tough day, but worth it for that feeling of satisfaction upon completion.
Bracing climbs, empty summits and plenty of pubs to warm your toes. This is a monster winter challenge for the motivated or the mad, promises Felicity Aston. The neighbouring peaks of Pen-yghent.
