    Peak-bagging at Gofar

    8 new peak-bagging routes have been added this winter taking the total to over 40.:w00t:

    Click on to the regional menu here: : http://www.gofar.org.uk/moreultrasv2temp.html

    So what’s new?

    Some Brand New Challenges

    30 Wainwrights @ 30 - Hot off the press, only completed last month by Andy Blackett (Durham Fell Runners)
    Six County Tops (Peak) - An extension of the Dark Peak 4 County Tops by Steve Leach (Rolls Royce Harriers). Completed last December with Bryan Carr & Jon Kinder.
    Upper Calder 13 Trigs - Devised by John Riley (CVFR) and first completed last October by Tony Wimbush (Idle AC), followed by Pete Simpson last month.


    Some old routes!

    Scottish 4000’s
    – the classic traverse from Ben Nevis to Cairn Gorm
    Snowdon to Pumlumon – the 3 principal peaks (and more) of North and Mid Wales in one go.
    The Two 3’s - National & Yorks 3 Peaks – a variation to the controversial National 3 peaks.
    Ring of Fire (Galloway) – a true wilderness challenge
    South Pennines 39 Trigs – an early CVFR epic
    John Fleetwood’s Scottish Challenges – a direct link to John’s revamped site detailing all his adventures.


    The Over The Hill Series.... is nearly over the hill!

    As advised in The Fellrunner the series will close at the end of the year but the six routes in the series will continue as standalone informal challenges .


    Training Routes – stepping stones to greater things!

    Calder Valley Round
    Howgill 1500’s
    Magnificient 7 (Calderdale)
    Six Trigs Challenge (Calderdale)


    UK Big 3 Statistics – Tom Wright, Nicky Spinks added, finishers updated (except BGR)


    NEXT UPDATE: hopefully WINTER 2013! There’s still plenty in the pipeline!

    Some great routes there MM , thanks for taking the time to add these to the site. The Upper Calder 13 looks very tempting since it passes my front door, but contains 3 trigs I've never been to (Dog Hill, Trough Edge End, Nab Hill). It's now definitely on the list of top 3 routes I must do at some point this year!

    Yes I would have thought the Calder Trigs might prove quite popular as it's on a lot of doorsteps so to speak! Generally good going as well so I can see some fast times being clocked up.

    Aye, an excellent resource. Think I might try a couple of the Lakes ones in the next month or two.

    Had an attempt at the 6CTs yesterday. Wheels fell off on Outer Edge big time. I was sick four times and had to bail at Crowden with 7 miles to go. Gutted. Sickness & Diaboggles, plus the bog monster and a half hour hail shower over the watershed bogs took its toll. The only positive is that there aren't many of us that have done two 4CTs. When I showed my three year old daughter a video of Shining Tor, all she could say was "Was that where you had a poo!". Still, when the pain goes away I might have another go.

    Hard luck Rodders. Good to see there is some interest and activity on some of the new gofar routes. I quite fancy a go at it sometime if I ever get fit again!
