    Might as well have a double BG while we're here: https://live.opentracking.co.uk/ebdbg21/ He's going well! Good conditions for it today.

    It's bloody hot in N.Wales today, how is it in the Lakes ?
    She's going impressively so far, hope she can hold the schedule.
    Is the official Wainwright for 'Whinlatter' actually at the far end, at the 517m point ?
    If so, I've only done 173 of them, not 174 !

    Careful Now - Indeed the Wainwright is 'Brown How' at the western end of the ridge. And it's not the only top that could be debated .

    More than half way round, and a mere 14 hours ahead of schedule. Did someone say that it takes at least 6 days to do the Wainwrights?

    I could do it again, I climbed it in the rain , normally like to do these in clear conditions.

    After pulling out something like 13hrs on her schedule, it's slightly closing up again (7-8hrs)

    That section she's about to do across to and over Hen Comb can be grim. Might be relatively ok due to the dry weather.

    I think this is partly down to having a break in Borrowdale last night. On her target schedule she'd have passed straight through in the daytime, whereas last night she arrived at 10pm and took a couple of hours break, so 'lost' that time. I haven't done the maths, but I assume the target schedule is the record, so she's looking very strong for breaking it. Incredible stuff.

    She's been consistently a few minutes up on splits across the Buttermere fells this morning. This is still the interesting point in the round though where it could start sliding.

    There is a John Kelly round mooted over the summer as well.
