.............. One of my several projects was to climb all of the 293 mountains in Scotland over 3,000ft on my own. And that was the last one.

WOW, outstanding ... a great personal challenge :smile:

I have enough problems climbing out of bed :-p

Yes, since I retired I've done a lot of mountains and learned a little bit of physics!

That photo of me is my only "selfie". I took it on the summit of Luinne Bheinn (a mountain in Knoydart, Western Scotland) last year. One of my several projects was to climb all of the 293 mountains in Scotland over 3,000ft on my own. And that was the last one.
Congratulations! To my way of thinking, that's a great goal to set for yourself. The only time I was in Scotland (1974) I was thinking of climbing Ben Nevis, which is the highest peak in Scotland, but the logistics of getting myself to the trailhead was too much for me, not having any way to get there.

Is the picture in your avatar a peak in Switzerland? It doesn't look like anything in Scotland that I'm aware of.

The mountain in my avatar is Ama Dablam, in Nepal, which I climbed in 2002. Best mountain in the world!

There's nothing in Scotland quite like that!

So you would be one of the few that have met our PF leader personally ?
I know there have been others. You'd have to ask @Greg Bernhardt for how many. All I can say is that Greg is an awesome, dedicated leader. From meeting him, I was able to check off one bucket-list item.
