Another wonderful Yorkshire Hill
by Fergalh  15 Mar 2021
Park to south east beside cattle Grid and follow track west to a landmark called Churn Milk Hole. At this point the track heads north and the straightforward climb with a minor scramble begins. Eventually you reach the summit marked with a trig pillar. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2783/comment/22610/

This track to the summit forms part of the Pennine way and there is a very steep section just before the summit. It can be seen to the right of the wall in this photograph. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/b2783/comment/22611/

Unusual name
by Fergalh  15 Mar 2021
The highest mountain of the famous Yorkshire three peaks (Whernside & Ingleborough are the other two peaks) has a name derived from the extinct Cambriac language. It is said that this language which is very similar to Welsh and was spoken in the Cumbrian area was the native language of Britain before the Angle and Saxons arrived.
