Michael scaled Pigeonhouse Mountain on the NSW South Coast early in
December, barely eight weeks after major surgery.
Not content with the two-hour uphill walk and the enormous staircases to
the summit, Michael and his friend Tom did some bouldering at the summit in
search of a better view.
'The crutches come in handy sometimes,' said Michael of Tom's efforts to
help him over the gap. 'Sometimes you have to accept help to get to where
you want to go.'
The round trip took about four hours and Milton admits to being exhausted
the following day.
'I really enjoyed it but I slept a lot to recover. It was a great day
though and a good way to vary my training,' said Milton.
