CHOIR WALKER CLIMBS TWO MUNROS

Choir walking group member Peter Gillman climbed two Munros at Easter.  The Munros were Geal-Charn and A'Mharcoinach in the Drumochter Hills. The total ascent was 750 metres and the walk took Peter - a member of the bass section -  and his son Seth six hours.

The climb marked Peter's return to the Scottish hills following an accident in October 2012, when he ruptured his right quadriceps tendon.  Following his operation at the Princess Royal Hospital, Farnborough, Peter spent three months in plaster and then on crutches.

"I set myself the motivational target of climbing a Munro," Peter says.  "In the event Seth and I did two.  It was a fabulous day, one of the best."

The Munros are Scottish mountains more than 3000ft (914ms) high.  There are 283 of them and Peter finished climbing them in 2010. Peter is 72.

The choir walking group will be undertaking a low-level outing near Croydon soon.
