I was navigator, rucsac carrier and general support for this leg of Richard and Richard's Bob Graham Round attempt. They completed the round in about 23 hours, one hour to spare! This was the night leg. Dark from Dollywaggon Pike on. We left Dunmail at 20:53 Saturday evening and reached Threlkeld at 2:23 Sunday morning. No rain but low cloud reduced the visibility at times.
