Giants round trip race!
« on: February 07, 2003, 08:16:07 am »
Well - 36 mins for the round trip last night by my good self!  8) Closely followed by jon who came in (2 mins behind me  :lol: ) at 38 min

Jim and pete who A, waited for each other B, had only done the round trip once before and were therefore C, uncertain of the route came in at 1hr 13min which is very respectable  :) , they even stopped for a carton of juice half way round  :wink: .

I can therefore confirm that Bob D's claimed time of around 28 mins is perfectly possible.  

We pegged it down the crabwalk quite quickly. It was once we were in the North East swallet that I just hit a wall and could only plod on. I think we overheated a bit - I was wearing my neo-fleece but was absolutely steaming hot. The windpipe was not just nice - but a neccesary relief.

If you where proper fit then you could run back up the NE swallet and back out in half the time we took.

So there it is folks - 36 mins to beat.
