The highest mountain in Yorkshire is usually climbed from Ribblehead. It is good but better is to approach from Dentdale in the west, quieter and always interesting.

A fine mountain with many excellent routes of ascent (from Clapham is best). The plateau like summit is a distinctive sight from miles around.
A celtic name for a fine mountain, the smallest of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. From Horton the distinctive flat topped summit is accessed via a short scramble. Fun.
Overlooking Dentdale with views further north to the Howgills. The summit is innocuous but a few yards away the trig at Crag Hill is more impressive.
Along the summit ridge of Pen-y-Ghent is Plover Hill, overlooking the head of Littondale. The peace and tranquility to be found is in sharp contrast to its more famous neighbour.
Fountains Fell is east of Pen-y-Ghent, a stones throw from the Pennine Way and the summit is potted with open mines and spoil heaps.
Lower and to the east of Ingleborough lies some flat moorland. A barely discernible rises with a small cairn marks the summit of Simon Fell.
The highest point of a broad, long ridge between Ingleton and Dent. The summit is in Lancashire (its highest mountain) but in the Yorkshire Dales! Linked to Great Coum further north.
The rough neighbour of Fountains Fell. A collapsed trig sat on a peat hag sums up this largely unloved fell. The views however are excellent.
The newest member of the Dales 30 Calf Top is the high point of a long grassy ridge running alongside the lovely valley of Barbondale.
