Less relative hills of Britain:

Humps Hall of Fame

Chris Watson

The Humps Hall of Fame has expanded from 26 members at the end of 2010 to 41 at the end of last year. There were eight new entrants to the Hall in 2011 plus seven who outed themselves during the year, several after buying Mark Jackson's excellent book, 'More Relative Hills of Britain' from The difference between using the e-book and having the real thing in your hands is amazing. A few are approaching the Upper Hall but there were no new members of this exclusive club in 2011. Less than half of those who had bagged 1200 Marilyns at the end of 2010 have confessed to moving on to the Humps. This is possibly because they do not wish to be distracted from completing the Marilyns or, more likely, the thought of working out their numbers is too daunting. A couple are also having trouble persuading their wives that this is not a list too far. We have had a few notable events during the year:

As before, an Excel version of the Humps Hall of Fame will be posted in the Files section of the RHB Yahoo group.
