    Hi Jonathan

    Can you tell me the mileage covered for each of the Yorkshire 3 peaks please?

  • After completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks in 3 days with Jonathan in 2021 we booked Scafell Pike in June this year.

    We had complete trust in Jonathan. We were anxious as to whether we could complete it but Jonathan’s calm and reassuring manner soon put us at ease. The pace of the group was perfect.

    We had a fabulous day in glorious sunshine with spectacular views. Looking forward to Helvelyn in September.

    Thank you Jonathan.

  • I’ve previously done Jonathan’s 2 day navigation course in the Yorkshire Dales and wanted to gain more confidence walking in the mountains and on more technical terrain. I did the Scafell Pike and Striding Edge guided walks in June. On both walks Jonathan managed the varied abilities and speeds of the group really well, so that no one felt held up or left behind.
    Prior to my trip I was extremely anxious and nervous about doing Striding Edge. Having walked up Scafell Pike the previous day and having absolute trust in Jonathan as a guide gave me the confidence to have a go. When we got to the ‘Hole in the Wall’, the part of the walk where the technical ridge walk starts, the cloud came down. While I was scared, I gave it a go. I couldn’t fault how Jonathan encouraged me to try some of the ridge walk, rather than taking the easier path along the side and to my amazement I did two thirds of it. Coming down Swirral Edge in the rain was fine after that!

    The best bit has been that I went on to camp and walk in Wasdale afterwards. I’m thrilled to have done solo walks up Yewbarrow, Pillar and Red Pike solo. So it definitely did the trick and has helped boost my convince no end! Thank you.

    The Scafell Pike walk sounds good. Can you give me the start time for this walk please?
