Which means that they have 35 routes left to do out of the 60, in the remaining 19 days; some in Scotland, the South-West routes, North Wales and today they have headed to the Lakes, it's a glorious sunny day here, and they begin with Extol on Dove Crag.
This week they have special guests joining them including Alan Hinkes who has climbed all the globe's 8,000m peaks; Stephen Reid, owner of Needle Sports, and one of only two climbers who have completed all the Hard Rock routes, the other climber is Peter Hardman. They will also be graced later in the week by Sir Chris Bonington, who may even do a route with Mark Stevenson and Rich Mayfield.
Mark Stevenson and Rich Mayfield are attempting to climb all 60 routes in Ken Wilson's Hard Rock in five weeks.
