A melody expresses the heroic moment in the cycle begins Bob Graham, sustained notes to make room for the wind to create wind noise in the corridors of the face. Later, a series of violin scales evoke the descent of the peaks. Wigley said he is "not happy" with his commission. "It's a clever evocation unbridled joy."

Wigley, an enthusiastic runner fell never made the Bob Graham Round, but in 50 years has run 50 hills in 27 hours ("three hours too slow") talks about his adventures Lake District with a fervor Mystic:

The solution is the time when the crest of a hill that was impossible to climb and all that then reveals a mosaic of well-defined colors, or a cold, misty rain, when the unfortunate run head of his body and synapses connect in new and everything is good in the world.
