    My 2 penneth: - A double in terms of visiting every summit twice, but not 2 'rounds' by definition - so call it a 'Double BG' but not a 'Double BG round'?
    That's right - Tom Hollins did a complete lap (a/c) then went back round clockwise. Pulled out at threlkeld. I think he fell on the clockwise leg 1 - a hot weekend if my memoryserves me well.

    There seems to be a bit of a renewed interest in the double - I know of two attempts at the double this year - both of which have failed for varying and different reasons. It's interesting that there seems to be an interest from within the ultra running community rather than the fellrunning community.

    I agree with that. IF I ever gave it a go it would be 2 CW laps. I kind of like the simplicity of that. Not sure I'll ever pluck up the courage to have a crack at it though. Respect to those that have / do.
