The Mountain Heritage Trust and CAN presented a special fundraising lecture with Andy Houseman and Doug Scott at Rheged near Penrith.
Doug introduced the evening with a presentation about his climb of Denali with Dougal Haston in 1976 and his ascent of Chamlang North Face, Nepal in 1981.
After the ‘warm up’ act (!) Andy gave a thrilling account of his climb of the Slovak route on Denali in Alaska with Nick Bullock and his frustrations in being driven off Chamlang by poor weather, but his joy in climbing an unclimbed, if smaller peak, nearby.
All in all this was a great evening that raised funds for the valuable work of these two mountaineers’ charities. Thanks to all who attended the lecture. The Mountain Heritage Trust will be organising further lectures this year and more details will appear on the CAN and MHT websites.Go Back
