In the remote Siula Grande in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates found himself in a desperate position…he was slowly being pulled off the mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope 50 metres below.  His decision to cut the rope saved both their lives and with the publication of the book and later film Touching The Void, both climbers became household names. 30 years later, Simon is still a very active exploratory climber and guide, there is hardly a significant range he hasn’t visited, from Alaska to Central Asia, the Arctic to the Antarctic.

 Don’t miss your chance to 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.

 

“Simon is a totally engaging speaker, who both entertains and inspires.”
