Would a small but fit Dog be able to Walk The Yorkshire 3 Peaks?
Q. I have a Jack Russell and I want to take her with me when i walk the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. Is this feasible? Or should I leave her at home?
She is very fit and i don't think the distance will be the problem its more the Scrambling parts?

A. The Yorkshire Three Peaks (Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside, Ingleborough) is a 37.5km (23.5 miles) walk with 1586m (5202ft) of ascent. The only scrambley bit is on the upper slopes of Pen-y-Ghent where the route goes up bare rock and may need to use your hands occasionally.
The approach to Ingleborough is steep but follows a 'stepped' path.
