Munro Compleatists


Those who complete (compleat!) the Munros can record this fact and receive the magic number by writing in to The Clerk of The List (See here). Additionally, a list of current compleaters is published annually in the SMC Journal.
Simon Jefferies — 1701
Cairn Bannoch — 13 May 1996


Simon writes: I’d been trying to do Cairn Bannoch and Broad Cairn for a couple of years but the weather had played havoc with my efforts. On the first occasion, three of us did Lochnagar and some other summits but were forced by whiteout to get down by Dubh Loch and away. The second attempt, earlier in 1996, was beaten by deep snow preventing access via Glen Muick, and the snow was too deep for an approach from any other direction.

Finally, here on 13/05/1996, I made the hill my final Munro, and the event was recorded on film by my wife Sheila, who later compleated in 2003 (2885) – perhaps I’ll send her compleation photo if I can find it and scan it for you.

We returned to Cairn Bannoch last year (2010) on a day of weather very similar to that in the picture – a superb late spring day.
