    Great starter mountain to get you used to the opportunities out there in the rest of the Dales, good tracks, steep in some parts, and a good beginners scramble up and over the snout. Don't forget when climbing towards the top, turn around to take in the view.

    For those tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks in the traditional counterclockwise direction, Pen-y-Ghent is the first summit you will reach. At 2,277 feet (694 metres), it is the smallest of the three but boasts incredible views of the golden landscape. With decent paths and a few scrambles to boot, it is a good warm-up for what is to come.

    Lots of options for routes up and down. Good little shelter at the top to get out of the wind
