The big mover in 2013 was Ken Whyte who did over 400 Humps and at year-end was only eleven short of completion. In the process he completed his English and Welsh Humps (excluding Old Man of Mow Cop - OMOM) to become the sixth member of this elite group. Sadly, he thinks that there are another six that are beyond his capabilities, thus leaving the door open eventually for Rob Woodall to regain top spot. Rob has done OMOM and also has his eyes on a few stacs.
There are only two new members in the Hall, Gary Jones and Martin Collins, who finally got around to working out his total. There are still a fair number of refuseniks out there who have not done this but, despite outing a few of them at Giggleswick, they have not been shamed into action.
Three members moved into the Upper Hall. Iain Brown and Stewart Logan had solo entries, however Martin Richardson was joined on the long walk out to Taran Mor on Harris by seven of the current members listed in the table below. A great day out by all accounts.
A few of us had hoped to join Andrew Brown and Darren Groutage as they completed England and Wales (excluding OMOM) on Green Crag in March. However, a blizzard descended on west Cumbria on the day and everybody but Mark Smith decided against risking the journey. Sadly, the train could not get him within striking distance of the hill but, amazingly, the determined duo somehow drove across from Ambleside and made it to a windy, frozen top. The car was stuck in a snowdrift for an hour but they still did not turn back, thus becoming the joint fourth members of the E and W club.
