Not So Old

Sir Chris Bonnington, pictured here with his late wife, Wendy, has turned 80 years-of-age. He has disproved notions of old age by climbing the 450' stack the Old Man of Hoy. An item in The Orcadian marks his achievement and his raising of funds to fight Motor Neurone Disease which claimed his wife's life.

Chris Bonnington came to my school Edinburgh Academy in 1967 when I was 13 and a boarder and gave us a mountaineering lecture.
