Proceeds from the talk will go to support the work of CAN. Doug will be telling the story of how he and Dougal Haston made the first ascent of the world’s highest mountain by its massive South West Face forty years ago. Their epic climb would go down in mountaineering history as ‘Everest the Hard Way’. Doug went on to make over forty first ascents in the Himalaya and Greater Ranges. He also felt a need to help the mountain people of Nepal who had helped him achieve these climbs. He did this by founding CAN and will also report on progress being made on the post-earthquake reconstruction of CAN’s projects including schools and health posts.
Before the talk and during the interval there will be a sale of Nepalese goods. There will also be an auction of signed framed mountain prints and Doug will be selling and signing copies of the first volume of his recently launched autobiography ‘Up And About’.
