Whernside is situated in the north of England. Located within the Yorkshire Dales, with an elevation of 736 m (2,415 ft), it is the highest of the Yorkshire’s Three Peaks. The mountain forms a long ridge and views from the summit stretch over to the Lake District, Morecambe Bay, and on a clear day, even Blackpool tower, located some 40 miles away.

To follow the most straight-forward route to the summit, start at Ribblehead. This route will take you past the magnificent Victorian Ribblehead Viaduct constructed in the 1870s.
