For many members of the Club, achievement of the 42 Peaks Round in under 24 hours is their sole goal. But as Selwyn records in his Introduction there have been some 'extraordinary achievements' across the Lakeland Fells since 1960. Here are some of them (and apologies in advance for any errors, or if your list would be different to this one!)
