Well done Tom.
Perhaps "Best Time" would be more accurate than "Record" given that conditions can vary so much for different attempts?
A massive undertaking and a great achievement. And what a day for it!
Also great account of Shane Ohly's winter round and attempt here: http://www.shaneohly.com/articles/2012/02/01/Charlie_Ramsay_Winter_Round_Attempt/ . The 2008 round makes particularly good reading.
Hi Tom "Well done"

The mind, as they say, boggles. Nails.

Time flies! This is my first round this year. My last round was the Paddy last July.

I first started climbing with Tom in the Lancashire quarries and can confirm he's not bad at all :0)
