Munro plunge climber in amazing escape
Bookmark and Share
A man climbing a Scottish mountain has had a great escape when he fell over 1,000 ft, only for the rescue helicopter to find him standing up and reading his Ordnance Survey maps.

Experienced mountaineer Adam Potter had been ascending the 3,589 ft Munro of Sgurr Choinnich Mor with his girlfriend and their dog when he stopped to fit crampons to his walking boots due to the snow.

At that point he slipped, slowing down on several occasions but plunging off one cliff after another.

However, Mr Potter only suffered relatively light injuries and has said that far from putting him off climbing, he will be taking on the challenge of Everest a few weeks from now.

Sgurr Choinnich Mor is part of the Grey Corries range of mountains near Fort William.

Other peaks in the range include Stob Coire Claurigh and Stob Ban, the latter not to be confused with its namesake in the nearby Mamores.
