Kettlewell - Starbotton - Great Whernside Walk

WalkExplorer

Great Whernside, although lower than Whernside at Ribblehead, is the highest peak in Wharfedale and is a steep climb whichever route you choose. This walk offers a warm-up along the Wharfe before a graded climb on an old pack-horse route and a final pull-up over steeper slopes; a tough but rewarding day out. I cannot vouch for it myself, but I have been told that on the clearest of days both coasts of England can be seen. Certainly the views are wide-ranging and Whernside, with its gritstone cap over a limestone sub-structure, is one of the finest as well as one of the highest of the peaks of the Yorkshire Dales.
