Tony Marlow's "JOSS" - 06 May

A sub-12 hour "JOSS" is way too fast for me to help out on other than at the support points and today we were only watching at Dunmail Raise on Tony's successful 11 hour 45 minute  attempt.

Old County Tops - 29 April

A walk around the heart of Lake District visiting the Old County Tops of Scafell Pike (Cumberland), Coniston Old Man (Lancashire) and Helvellyn (Westmorland), starting in Seathwaite and finishing in Rosthwaite at the Fell & Rock CC hut. Unlike 2016 when the snow prevented us completing the route the weather was benign - cool, overcast and dry. The conditions made for less spectacular photos than last year but completing the route made up for that.
