Nice hike from Malham to Horton-in-Ribblesdale over Pen-y-Ghent. Good views from the top. Not too crowded in March.

The ease/difficulty of this climb will depend entirely on your level of fitness! We were able to park the mini bus on the road (early start!).
Myself and my group of ladies (of a certain age!), our male fitness instructor (who, frankly could have run up the mountain!) and his partner (who could also have run!) achieved this hike on 17th Sept 2017.
We were lucky weather wise but went well prepared so a little rucksack comes in useful for your bits and bobs and to keep your hands free for the trickier bits. You will need good walking boots (in my opinion) but I did see others wearing trainers.
Our group went up the 'red route' with the scramble at the top. Again, the scramble will depend entirely on your fitness levels. I found it difficult and needed a hand up and both hands free but achievable taking it steady! As many others have written, this is a very clearly marked walk/hike. No camera will do the view from the top justice and the sense of achievement is fabulous!
We came down the 'blue route' and were glad we didn't go up this way. It felt longer and less stimulating. Despite the claims that this is the 'easier' route it did feel tricky under foot on occasion walking on shale and a lot of steps.
The end goal was a well earned pint in one of the pubs in the village and a sense of achievement in completing this challenge.

We didn’t meet many people over the Christmas period on the dales but the ones we did were local, friendly and keen to share their knowledge of the area. We stayed at Horton Scar House at the foot of Pen-Y-Ghent and had a perfect first Christmas as a married couple and got out onto the dale and surrounding areas as much as the weather allowed. Bleak, cold, beautiful and festive! Perfect!!

Great walk, amazing views but remember its name of windy as it can get hairy on the corners. More fun than scary though
