Doug’s lectures are famous for his personal and thought provoking commentary, illustrated with his stunning photography of the world’s most  spectacular mountain landscapes.

During 2016 Doug will be visiting various locations and full details of this lecture tour celebrating his historic climb on Everest in 1975: Everest The Hard Way are below. Next year the focus will shift to The Ogre and Doug’s tale of survival exactly 40 years ago when he literally crawled down the mountain with two broken ankles.

  • Doug’s books  including Volume 1 of his autobiography, ‘Up and About’ which has been well received including Michael Palin’s favourable comment:    Up and About is an understatement.   In this book are clear and comprehensive accounts of some of the most dangerous things it’s possible to do.    From winning a baby show in Nottingham to taking on the most perilous rock faces in the world this is a full and fascinating portrait of one of the great figures of mountaineering.   A man for whom no challenge went unanswered.      Michael Palin, January 2016
