T.R. Reid on Mountain Climbing
Commentator T.R. Reid, tells host Bob Edwards about his latest outdoor excursion- climbing Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in Britain. At just over 4,400 feet, "The Ben" is a far cry from the 14 26,000 foot plus peaks mountaineers usually brag about, but Reid says the day long climb is well worth the effort.
