The ‘Dales 30’ are the mountains in the Yorkshire Dales National Park over 2,000 feet with a 30 metre drop on all sides (100 foot when all said and done).
The full list is here.

Over the past few years increasing numbers of people are taking up the challenge of climbing these mountains, I know this from the number of ‘Dales 30’ books that are selling, a rough and ready guide which hopefully reflects the mountains and areas themselves, and the feedback I receive from those doing or completing the 30.
There are many and varied reasons why walkers are turning to the Dales 30 for their mountain fix. Here are 10 I have heard about.
Hopefully the Dales 30 book will also help you on your way. I am only selling these direct on the website and via local book shops (no Amazon!) but the publicity has been superb. There was a nice piece in the Guardian and also the local press have certainly been on board.
I have a passion for the mountains of the Dales and hope the challenge will bring many more happy and interested visitors in to the less popular areas of the Dales.
