No Sleep Till Bakewell: A film featuring Randall-Whittakerâ€™s Brown-Whillans Challenge now on-line
- Wednesday 15th October 2014
No Sleep Till Bakewell, a new short film capturing Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker’s challenge to do all the Brown-Whillans routes on the Eastern and Western grit in a day, has just been released. As featured in the current (November) issue of Climber, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker managed to complete this mammoth undertaking earlier in the year within their self-imposed target in a 24hour period starting and finishing at midnight.
This particular challenge involves climbing 125 routes on 17 different crags with 23.6 miles of running in-between with 1,800m of ascent. No Sleep Till Bakewell captures the determination and the training as well as the ensuing exhaustion together with the faint whiff of madness that is needed to prepare for and complete such escapades.
The video has just been made available on-line. Get yourself a coffee and then sit back for the gut-busting grit ride. To watch the video click through here… http://vimeo.com/108762454
