The Wainwrights

391 miles, 214 tops and 121000 feet of ascent!!

For many the completion of the Wainwrights can take a lifetime – for the likes of Chris Bland, Alan Heaton and Joss Naylor it can take a lot less. Joss completed the tops, in the order noted below, in 7 days, 1 hour 25 minutes (from Moot Hall to Moot Hall)!!!
