Wainwrights climbed.

Alfred Wainwright described 214 separate fells in his "Pictorial Guides".  If you add up their individual heights, the total number of feet above sea level is 452,550.  Which is one good reason why "peak-baggers" are often seen hurrying along the high ridges between peaks, in order to reduce this number to manageable proportions!  If you follow Stuart Marshall's 36 individual routes around the Wainwrights, the height climbed reduces to 151,792 feet, or 49,123 metres, which is over 5 times the height of Everest.  The length of Stuart Marshall's routes is 421 miles.  We finished up climbing 155,800 feet, and walking 469 miles, in just under 6 months.
