Saturday 1 May to Sunday 23 May 2010

The aim of the challenge was to record ascents by Wainwright Society members of all the fifty-six Outlying Fells in addition to the thirty-four walks in Walks in Limestone Country and thirty-two walks in Walks on the Howgill Fells. All of the fells were allocated and all funds raised via the challenge will be donated to Fix the Fells.

Online Photo Gallery
We have placed online the vast majority of the ascent photos of the Best of the Rest Challenge on the website. To view the photos submitted online click here.

'Best of the Rest' Book and CD
