The mighty Ribblehead viaduct is my favourite starting point for getting up Whernside. Far better than from the west side (IMO, YMMV etc). And so we set off one August day.
It was a pretty straightforward loop, as you can see from the map below:
The only amusement was that Dave's boot fell apart but between us we had a small roll of gaffer tape and some cable ties so he was able to make a passable repair!
Who on earth carries gaffer tape and cable ties onto the mountains? Obviously someone VERY well prepared....
