Count down to walking the Pennine Way has begun this Easter.  The start date is the 22nd April, my 50th birthday.

The itinerary is on the next post but for the moment I thought I’d create a toughness index.  This is simply the number of miles + height gain in feet divided by 1000.

The last day walking from Byrness to Kirk Yetholm over the Cheviots is the toughest.  Day 6 from Kirkby Malham to Hawes is the 2nd toughest.  Then there’s a drop to day 11 which is from Alston to Once Brewed.  Then another drop to a group of 3 days (Dufton-Alston 10, Middleton-Dufton 9, Hebden-Lothersdale 4).  Another drop to the remaining days with the exception of day 2, which is the easiest of the bunch.  One day 14 is equivalent to two day 2s.
