    He took a long break after leg 1 (14h or so) then another rest at Ennerdale.
    with long rests may be the perfect base for a summer attempt!

    Wynn Cliff & I covered his road support and had a challenge getting into Wasdale, even in a 4x4 pick-up with "proper" tyres ..... Wynn's son-in-law is a farmer.

    Yep the time for this winter round is not important really all he has to do is complete it and he will have the winter record, then come back later in the year and break Pauls record then he becomes the first Wainwright round double record holder.

    here is what he has to contend tommorow :-
