    Sorry Ian, but the best all round fellrunner has got to be Colin Donnelly.

    Best descender Keith Anderson without a shadow of a doubt.

    Best climber here are few that some of you might not have heard of Malcolm Patterson, Mike Short, Jack Maitland, Robin Bergstrand.

    Of todays climbers maybe only Jebby is worth a mention, again, sorry Rob but you have lost it a bit in the last few years!

    Maitland was a truly great racer, and not only a hard ascender (ask fanny!) you should have seen his descents on the S-Z!

    Andy Styan and Ricky Wilde were no slouches at descending

    and Colin Robinson's descent of Whernside in 1969 - 12min 44sec, simply stuff of legend!!

    Tis truely the stuff of legends

    Although Holmsey has stood the test of time and just about all the classics.

    All the top runners are and have been great but with what he has won over such a number of years makes him the greatest.

    Imagine how fast he'd have gone in a pair of Inov8s

    Anyway, I'd have taken him on the scree. I'd need a different soundtrack though, maybe some Napalm Death.
