Bob Graham Weekend - successes for Neil, Nick & Phil
Friday evening promised ideal conditions for the BG. The weather was clear but cool; progress was very good overnight and they were 20 mins up at Dunmail. The clag came down on Bowfell and that made navigation hard and the rocks slippery especially Broad Stand. Neil and Nick started to pull away from Phil and David on this section but they all arrived at Wasdale ok. The clag continued over to Honister making navigation hard again. Neil and Nick were bang on schedule at Honister and set off determined to Keswick. Phil arrived half an hour later, wasn't allowed to stop and continued with a large band of supporters to Keswick (as by this time we had learnt that Robert was in a pub somewhere!!).
The weather thought about being nice then decided against it and by the time Neil and Nick arrived at Moot Hall in 23.35 (don't quote me to the minute !!) it was raining. They made good use of two bottles of sparkly and then started tucking into everybody's chips !! Well done to them both !!
