Which Way To The Summit Meeting?
So, where did he plant the flag? Comedian Griff Rhys Jones is lying low after falsely claiming to have climbed Britain's highest mountain. He recently told viewers of the TV series that he had finally conquered the 1343 metre Ben Nevis on his third attempt. But Rhys Jones, 54, later admitted: "I said we got to the summit, but we didn't. I wish I'd looked at a map.'' He said he did not realise he was on a neighbouring peak 122 metres below the summit in the Scottish highlands.
