Facts and Figures
This page is a sort of catchall for information that doesn’t really fit anywhere else.
The following table shows information about each top on the round. The figure given for the height gain is that from the lowest point to the summit, it does not take into account any other dips and ascents. As such the figures may be slightly less than might be found on the ground. The table may be sorted by clicking on the column headings - an arrow will indicate the current sorting column and if it is in ascending or descending order.
The effort column is a variation on Naismith’s Rule: It is the distance divided by 500 plus the height gain divided by ten. There is no scientific basis for these other than they do produce a scale that fits fairly well with how an ascent feels.
I have used Yiannis Tridimas’ tops for the 60 @ 60 round. Since he is currently the only person to have done it, there is no other source that could be used.
Click on the appropriate tab to show the extra tops for the extended rounds. The distances, height gain and effort for the extra tops is also shown with those of the following summits modified accordingly. The tops over and above the basic 42 have a green background. The alternative 55 @ 55 is that of George Brass who actually did them anti-clockwise.
|No||Name of Top||Height (m)||Distance(m)||Height gain(m)||Effort|
The following table shows the cumulative ascent in either direction. Interesting to note that for most of the round, the clockwise direction is ahead in terms of climbing done. The table is by top rather than by distance so it may not be entirely accurate.
