Here are the details of some talks I'll be doing in the next few months. If you're anywhere near at the time make sure you come along!
20th November

This talk, "The Alps and Beyond" for the Lancashire Caving and Climbing Club will be roughly an hour and a half long, probably with a small break. Famous and not-so-famous routes on the N faces of the Alps, from classics like the Eiger North face to obscure testpieces on the North face of the Grandes Jorasses will be covered. This will lead in to accounts of scary times on big mountains in places such as Alaska, Patagonia and the Karakorum.

Location- Bradshaw Conservative Club. 77 Lea Gate  Bolton BL2 3ET

1st December

As the evening entertainment on the night of the STS drytooling final at Glenmore Lodge, I'll be doing a talk entitled "High and Dry". The talk will be about mixed climbing on big cold faces of mountains all over the world, and how skills learnt in drytooling can be transferable to pitches on long hard alpine routes. Really its an excuse to show loads of gobsmacking photos of incredible routes and get everyone psyched for the large and the cold!

8 o clock start (ish)

7th February

For the Ochils Mountaineering Club in Stirling, this will be along the same lines as the talk in Bolton in November. "The Alps and Beyond" will hopefully inspire, or make you appreciate your warm bed at home in equal measure!

Location - Stirling County Rugby Football Club in Bridgehaugh, Stirling, FK9 5AP, 8p.m. start.
