    I'm just going through the records for the club site and wondered if anyone knew if the following four were the only ones to have completed a [email protected] round:

    Paul Murray 1997
    George Brass 1998
    Dennis Lucas 1998
    Julie Carter 2019

    A pretty select club if so.

    Hi Bob, your post has led me on an idle afternoon to browse the [email protected] info on your excellent website.
    Interestingly the extra 5 tops for the 55 are defined, but the 8 peaks from 42 to 50 have a lot of variation.
    Is that how its defined? 8 additional peaks from the 50 list and then the 5 from the 55 list?
    Just curious.

    The first extended rounds were done before anyone thought of what might be suitable or valid peaks for doing so.
    Applying a set of rules "after the fact" might have meant that existing [email protected] be regarded as invalid. As a result some extra peaks might be thought of as more deserving than others.

    It does mean that the standard 42 is defined and the 24hr record also has a set of defined tops but everything in between doesn't.

    I'd imagine that Paul Murray and Dennis Lucas simply built on their [email protected] rounds (but have no evidence to support that). Incidentally Paul and Dennis are the only members of a very, very exclusive club to have done a standard round, a [email protected] and a [email protected]

    I'm still waiting for Julie to get back to me with her list - she's had a computer malfunction - so it may just be coincidence that the five extra tops for the 55 are the same for the other three.
