Event description

Description

Newall Hunter FRGS is a Scottish adventurer and engineer who, in 2016, became the first Scot and one of only 15 people in the world to complete the full Adventurers’ Grand Slam – climbing the highest mountains of each of the seven continents and reaching both Poles. Newall will discuss his thoughts on how successful adventures are more science than art and why good planning, field testing and reconnaissance are essential to successful expeditions. He will also share outstanding photographs and tales of the pleasures and pitfalls (both technical and cultural) of operating, often solo in predominantly cold and remote terrain.

As well as talking about the Adventurers’ Grand Slam, Newall will just have returned from an attempt at 'Crossing the Gobi Desert in winter - a solo desert challenge' and the Gaucho talk will be the first showing of photos and tales of his latest challenge.

Newall is one of Scotland’s leading adventurers and also a technical mentor for SES. SES Host for the evening will be Trustee Diane Allen
