Event description

Description

Sir Chris Bonington tells the extraordinary and very personal story of a lifetime's journey of discovery and  pushing limits; from his first encounter of climbing aged sixteen, through to repeating his epic first ascent of the Old Man Hoy to celebrate reaching the age of 80.

Interspersed throughout, are thrilling accounts of his first British ascent of the North Wall of the Eiger, the Annapurna South Face, the Everest South West Face, his epic first ascent of the Ogre with Doug Scott; one of the great survival stories of all time, and in more recent years, sailing with Robin Knox Johnston to climb an unclimbed peak.

Sir Chris introduces some of the great characters of the past six years: Hamish Macinnes, Tom Patey, Don Whillans, Dougal Haston, Doug Scott, Peter Boardman, Joe Tasker, and many others, whilst providing insight into the challenges of earning a living through climbing whilst raising a family.

His spell-binding narrative is illustrated with superb imagery and video clips from many of his climbs – it all makes for a very special evening.
