Manxmen climb Himalayan peak

MANX walkers waved the Three Legs of Mann flag at the summit of a 21,000ft peak in the Himalayas. Four Islanders took on the 17-day trek to Mera Peak in Nepal. Among the party were Parish Walkers Roey Crellin and Sean Hands along with Mike Gellion and Paul Young. Roey, 52, from Peel, said it was an exhausting but exhilarating experience tackling the climb to Mera Peak which is around six miles from Everest.
