Cameron conquers Mount Elbrus!

Cameron Gray, an officer in the 1st Cumbernauld Boys’ Brigade attached to Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, has just completed a successful ascent of Mount Elbrus as part of his ‘Seven Summits Challenge’ to raise money for the Boys’ Brigade in Scotland. Mount Elbrus, at 5,642 metres (18,510 feet) is Russia’s and Europe’s highest mountain.

Well done, Cameron. Have a safe descent and journey home!

A post on the challenge’s Facebook page this morning reads:
GOOD NEWS! Heard from the man himself… HE MADE IT!!!!
I’m sure I will not be the only one congratulating him. It’s been a long slog but perseverance, self motivation and a little faith have pulled him to the top. Cameron is currently at the North hut camp, so is still some 3760m up the mountain. His adventure is far from over so please keep supporting him as he will need it climbing back down. Please Keep him in your thoughts and I will keep you updated on his progress until he has the chance to tell you all his stories himself! CONGRATULATIONS CAMERON, ANOTHER ONE DOWN.
