Climber overcomes condition to reach mountain summit
Bookmark and Share
A woman who had been left almost unable to walk has marked her recovery with a charity hike to the top of a Scottish Munro.

The John Muir Trust's biodiversity officer Liz Auty climbed Schiehallion in Perthshire to raise money for Trust and Pelvic Instability Network Scotland, two years after first being diagnosed with debilitating pelvic girdle pain.

She noted: "I went from being quite an active, outdoor person to spending most of my time indoors."

However, after extensive therapy she can now don women's outdoor clothing again, not just to climb mountains but also to carry out her work in monitoring habitats and species more easily.

Such a feat may encourage those who have recovered from physical conditions or accidents and are hoping to pick up some new walking boots to head back to the hills.

Other charity climbs being undertaken by people associated with the John Muir Trust include the quest by members Kevin Beck and Stuart Welsh to raise funds for the charity through a Three Peaks Challenge with a difference, which they hope to conclude on September 4th.

In addition to climbing the mountains, they are riding bikes to cover the 550 miles between them.
