North Pennine Ridge South – Dufton to Hartside Pass via Cross Fell Details
There’s no doubt that the North Pennines provide some wild and strenuous walking. The highest point, Cross Fell, isn’t easily ascended from any direction, and so any day in these hills is going to be a big one!
This route starts off in Dufton by following the Pennine Way and ascending Knock Fell, Great and Little Dun Fells before reaching Cross Fell itself. It continues along the ridge towards Hartside Pass to finish the day.
As this is a linear route, you’ll need to organise transport back to the beginning, or you can continue northwards over the remaining Pennine hills to Hallbankgate and make a weekend of it!
