30 years after Simon Yates cut the rope to save both his partner’s (Joe Simpson) and his own life in Peru, he is still a very active exploratory climber and guide, making several expeditions to the mountains each year. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, Alaska to Central Asia there is hardly a significant range that he has not visited.
Come along and witness Simon’s tireless journey from that mountain in Peru to some of the remotest on the planet and share with him the drama, excitement and beauty of modern, lightweight alpinism. Told with wit, dry humour and lavishly illustrated with images and video collected on his great climbs.
The lectures feature spectacular images and film from the Arctic to the Antarctic and from Alaska to Central Asia.
