Join a room filled with fellow climbers and hill walkers for lively chat; including a presentation from Thomas Richardson about his book which is based on 30 years' climbing in the Himalaya and Greater Ranges including guiding on 7 expeditions to 8000m peaks.
It is not just an account of these trips but more an exploration of the decisions made and lessons learned. Sometimes they went well and sometimes they didn't.
Mick Fowler in Climb describes the book as an excellent read with plenty of food for thought. Joe Simpson said that it left him " feeling nostalgic, wistful, a little sad sometimes, amused at others, suddenly a lot older but above all feeling a happy sense of celebration at the lives we have lived, the adventures experienced and the friends made on the way. We have been blessed. But as you rightly said "so many gone". We paid a price as well." The book will be on sale on the night for a reduced price of £10.
