" SGIOMLAIREACHED! "
This is my father ´s excalamation when he climbed up the high Romanian mountain - when he reached the top of the mountain, he was out of breath, you know...
So the right sentence would be: "Sgiomla is reached!"
Wink
By the way - " SGIOMLAIREACHED! " can be used as an exclamation with the meaning: "I have done it!"

At last! After all those fancy Greek and Latinate words, we ´ve got the real language of Eden: the Gaelic, no less. 

Sgiomlaireachd: pronounced scum-leerie, the word entered the English language via those highlanders who, over the centuries, migrated to Glasgow and carried on a mutual love-hate relationship with their lowland hosts. A gaelicised Lallans term, it refers to an attitude of wariness (being ´leery ´) toward someone who purports to be your friend but in all likelihood would just as soon cut your throat and ransack your sporran (a ´scumbag ´).

So, an adjective meaning ´suspicious of people who hang around railway stations ´.
