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.

Ben Vane - 3 September 2012
Being an artist/Sculptor I thought it would be appropriate to make Ben Vane's day too. As the only one of the four Arrochar Alps without ever having had a trig, I thought it needed one. Over the previous few weeks I designed and made a portable framework from pieces of 2.5mm welding rod that could be carried in my rucksack and assembled and held together with masking tape, along with a white nylon cover sleeve run up with some difficulty and headaches on my sewing machine.
Charles was accompanied by ten friends:
Stewart Logan (10 rounds of Munros); Iain Brown (Munroist 3710, also Corbetts and Grahams); Phil Cooper (Munroist 191); Jonathan de Ferranti (Munroist 786); Tony Whitehead (247 Munros); Mark Nightingale; Michael Pearce; Graeme Patterson (also in the picture); Aileen Gray; and Ian Crabb.
