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.
Matthew Eastburn 5016
Lurg Mhor 4 June 2012


Matthew writes: It all started in the bar at the Graduation Ball at Leicester University in 1991 when Chris Shaw and myself decided that it would be a really good idea to climb them all (it was in the early hours of the morning, so judgement was questionable). The first Munro climbed was Creag Meagaidh on February 6th 1993 with several members of Carlisle Mountaineering Club including Matthew Baker, with whom I would go on to climb many more Munros.

This is how it all ended:

Saturday 2nd June: Ladhar Bheinn in the Knoydart - a ten hour day.
Sunday 3rd June: Bla Bheinn on Skye - a 'rest' day taking three and a half hours up and down. In the evening a 26km bike ride to the head of Loch Monar with bivvy kit.
Monday 4th June: the circuit of Loch Monar taking in five Munros over 44km, the last one being Lurg Mhor - a fifteen hour day.
Tuesday 5th June: cycle back to civilisation.

One great adventure.
