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.
David Bethune 4804
Aonach Mr 2 July 2011


David notes: 35 years 1 month and 24 days after climbing Ben Vorlich, I reached my final (but hopefully not last) Munro, Aonach Mor, at 3.30pm on Saturday 2nd July 2011. Its taken a while - started aged 19, compleated aged 53 - good things are best enjoyed slowly!

You can follow most of my adventures on www.dbethune.com/Mountains and, more recently, www.thoselast50munros.blogspot.com

On the final summit were from L to R:
Ben Nevis(!), my daughter Fiona, my wife Anne (who has climbed 136 so far), Allan Findlay (4357), Anne Findlay (4265), me (at the top of the cairn), Frank Frame (at the front), my sister Frances, and Malcolm Findlay.

Four of us climbed from Glen Nevis, over Sgurr a Bhuic, Sgurr a Choire Bhealaich and Aonach Beag, and the other four came up from the gondola carrying the champagne, cake and other goodies, to meet us on the summit. A great day!
