This time with Pauline in more benign conditions apart from the icy wind.

In 2006 I completed a BGR in under 24 hours (see Fell Shoe Shuffler's BGR below)) and then wondered what to do next. Beyond a Bob Graham Round - there are a number of 42+ summit rounds but the original extended rounds are sometimes overlooked, perhaps for easier rounds. This is about attempts at the original, anti-clockwise, "Pioneers' 55"@55. After two failed attempts in 2008 I decided on one more, final, attempt on the 13th June.
