LECTURE TITLE: ‘Significant and Joyous Moments of Being in the Mountains’
This new lecture, lavishly illustrated with Doug’s celebrated mountain photography, gives a very personal account of a lifetime spent in the world’s highest mountains – both the highs and the lows.
The first half of the lecture covers Doug’s big wall climbing from humble beginnings on the gritstone of Derbyshire, through to routes on the big walls of the world. Featured climbs include routes on the Dolomites, Troll Wall, Yosemite, up the towering Asgard on the arctic circle of Canada to the Ogre in the Karakoram and Shivling of the India Himal.
In the second half the lecture discusses Doug’s expedition climbing from early overland trips to North Africa, Turkey, Kurdistan and the Hindu Kush to Everest South West Face, Kangchenjunga, Nupste, Shishapangma and K2.
