you miss out some of the brutal climbs such as Penyghent from the steep side
Whilst going S>N it is steep, I would rather that than descending PYG going N>S! I would have to go down backwards.

I thought one reason to walk s/n for mere mortals was that you had walked yourself fitter before tackling cross fell and the Cheviots. As this obviously doesn't apply to ultra runners, is there something to be said for getting the more challenging bits done first while a bit fresher?
Mind you I found the first day over Kinder quite hard. My excuse is that the pre walk training I had intended to do was messed up by eating a dodgy langoustine at a party.

Just seen Damian and John on TV. I liked the comment when asked whether Damian felt bad for beating John's record - he said that he only beat a record that stood for a week whilst Damian beat one that stood for 31 years.
