    The Ramsay Round

    While searching the web to find some light exercise for Dominion I came across this website:

    I am reminded of a wonderful book entitled 'No Tigers in the Hindu Kush' written by Philip Tranter's father after Philip died driving back from the Hindu Kush in 1966. I always thought it was one of the two most moving mountaineering books I had read, the other being 'The Last Blue Mountain'.

    Just heard from Shane Ohly that he got round the Ramsey. He was unsupported and solo. I presume it is classed as a winter round given it's Scotland. He did it in a shade under 30 hrs. According to Gary Thompsett, who has the winter round record, he has broken the record.

    Shane was heard to say: " I never want to run again".

    Superb effort, especially unsupported and solo.

    Isn't he doing the HPM in 3 weeks?

    It puts my run to shame. Top effort.

    There is an attempt this week end by Nicky Spinks to collect the third of the Grand Tours.


    I've never seen her so fit and focused so good luck Nicky.

    I spotted that earlier
    Looking at the names on the completion list would I be correct it saying she will only be the third woman ever to complete the RR. If this is so then that would ring true for the Triple crown!

    And the second woman to do BG, PB and Ramsey.
    Helen Diamanties being the other goddess.
