Journalistic Skills Sadly Lacking

Great news story surrounding a British climber who survived a fall of around 300m in Scotland. Pity the journalistic skills are sadly lacking. Does the guy have a name or not? Is he 35 or 36 years old? Or was the piece written before the photo was taken and he became known and he, Adam Potter, had a birthday in the interim and the editor is therefore at fault?

In any case, the highest mountain in the UK is Ben Nevis and not Sgurr Choinnich Mor so there's no forgiving that fluff.

Amazing probably because, he is a limey from what I am told.
