Colin Egan hiked Whernside on November 16th, 2018 [from/via/route] Ascent from Ribblehead, via 3 Peak route, descent via 3 peak route on our way to Ingleborough [with] My wife Faith [weather] Cloudy and cold, some rain. In the cloud on top! - We decided that we would do the 3 Peaks over 2 days as we are not young enough and fast enough to do it at speed!

Stephen Reader summited Whernside on July 5th, 2018 [from/via/route] from Ribblehead Viaduct [with] On my own [weather] Glorious sunshine but very warm - Views to die for.

Kevin Foster conquered Whernside on August 16th, 2017 [from/via/route] Great Coum via the 'Occy' (Occupation)road. [with] Henry [weather] Sunny morning becoming increasingly cloudy then light rain later on. - What a great mountain Whernside is! The least popular of the Three Peaks but I have to say my personal favourite simply because of the view. The drop off from Great Coum was very steep to reach the 'Occy' road. The first time I walked this green lane it was dry and an absolute pleasure but now it's badly rutted and today was virtually underwater. My two trekking poles came in handy though...puddle jumping. The ascent from the Kingsdale road looks quite intimidating but it turns out to be not as bad as it looks and then suddenly you are there at the summit trig point and looking down at Ribblehead viaduct and the other two peaks. What a stunning view! As great a mountain as Ingleborough is you don't get the same view looking across at Whernside. The descent was very long and surprisingly boggy in parts considering that the underlying stone was permeable limestone. A word of warning here about the finish to the walk. The described route via Braida Garth is across some very rough cow pasture and the 'path' is in dreadful condition and unclear at times. If I did this route again I would take the diversion to Thornton Force waterfall and then follow the road along Kingsdale back to your parked car.
