Catch the Summits

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks may dominate the headlines in the Yorkshire Dales but there is still room for some other excellent fells. Many I actually enjoy more than the big 3, so much so that they have their own criteria and now showcased in my very own book...The Dales 30.  I enjoy Fair Snape Fell and anything in the Lonely Howgills is worth a visit but I will let you in to a little secret - Buckden Pike is my favourite.
