While I understand the challenge of time limits (see audax) I have no desire to rush over the three peaks, certainly not until I have enjoyed them all separately.  From Horton-in-Ribblesdale train station – marvellously the west platform is accessible by public footpath only – I walked south-ish to visit the mouth of Gaping Gill before heading up to the peak.

Suncream and specs required, but around the summit was fast moving low loud; cold and erie.  A few small patches of snow were hanging on.

The Pen-y-ghent café appears to be closed on Tuesdays, but happily the pub was open.  The trains back to Leeds were running about every 2 hours so it was good to have somewhere accommodating to wait.
