A CRAWL DOWN THE OGRE

Tickets: www.eden-court.co.uk  Box Office: 01463 234234

This year is the 40th anniversary of Doug + Team's successful ascent of the Ogre and Doug will show newly discovered images of the climb. Doug will recount how, as he abseiled from just below the summit, he slammed into the rock, dangling on the end of the rope with both legs broken just above the ankles and then had to crawl back down the mountain. This epic journey took eight days. With the selfless support from the other team members, Sir Chris Bonington, Mo Anthoine and Clive Rowland they eventually descended to the glacier and relative safety. Except the adventure did not end there as there was a five day wait for the stretcher party to pick up Doug and, when the helicopter did eventually fly everyone out, it crash landed at Skardu. 

The evening will include a sale of Nepalese goods, cards and posters and will be followed by an auction of signed framed mountaineering prints, all supporting the post-earthquake reconstruction work of Community Action Nepal www.canepal.org.uk.  Doug will also sign copies of his award-winning autobiography Up And About.

A CRAWL DOWN THE OGRE

An evening with Sir Chris Bonington & Doug Scott CBE

This event has now completely sold out but please phone Phil or Sarah on 01865 778536 to be put on the waiting list for returns. Alternatively, you might consider purchasing tickets for London on Wednesday 22nd November or Birmingham on Thursday 23rd November. Chris and Doug will both be speaking at these events. 

 

The Ogre - image taken in 1977

The Ogre - image taken in 1977

Doug Scott and Chris Bonington's undoubted mountaineering high point was their collaboration in making the first ascent of Everest by its enormous South West Face: Everest, The Hard Way. But their greatest adventure was undoubtedly the first ascent, accident and then escape from The Ogre. This is an epic tale of hard climbing and survival that has now become part of mountaineering folklore.

The Ogre [7,285m] is the most difficult of the world's high mountains to climb. In 1977 Doug and Chris made the first ascent after very difficult rock climbing that extended the boundaries of what had been achieved before at that altitude. The subsequent descent, in the dark, immediately became an epic; while abseiling off the summit block Doug slipped on water ice and swung, then smashed into the cliff he had just climbed, breaking both legs just above the ankles. A storm blew in lasting five days during which time Chris smashed his ribs and contracted pneumonia. It took eight hard days to reach Base Camp and that was only made possible by the selfless support of Clive Rowland and Mo Anthoine.

It was 24 years before there was a second ascent of The Ogre.

Their escape is one of mountaineering’s greatest ever epics and Doug and Chris will come together in Oxford, London and Birmingham for three very special evening lectures to tell of their amazing adventure.

Proceeds from the talk will help fund the reconstruction of CAN’s projects damaged or destroyed in the Nepal earthquakes in 2015.  Doug will update the audience on the project being made with the projects.  There will be a sale of Nepalese goods, posters and cards before each talk and during the intervals. Each talk will be followed by an auction of signed framed mountaineering prints. Chris and Doug will be signing copies of their books, including Doug’s award-winning autobiography Up and About’ and Chris’s newly published autobiography ‘Ascent’.

BROADWAY CINEMA, 14-18 BROAD STREET

A CRAWL DOWN THE OGRE

Ticketing information from www.broadway.org.uk  Telephone: 0115 9526611

This year is the 40th anniversary of Doug + Team's successful ascent of the Ogre and Doug will show newly discovered images of the climb. Doug will recount how, as he abseiled from just below the summit, he slammed into the rock, dangling on the end of the rope with both legs broken just above the ankles and then had to crawl back down the mountain. This epic journey took eight days. With the selfless support from the other team members, Sir Chris Bonington, Mo Anthoine and Clive Rowland they eventually descended to the glacier and relative safety. Except the adventure did not end there as there was a five day wait for the stretcher party to pick up Doug and, when the helicopter did eventually fly everyone out, it crash landed at Skardu.

ASHBOURNE FESTIVAL

Doug Scott  - An Illustrated Talk

Nottingham born Doug Scott started climbing on the local Black Rocks near Cromford and is now widely acknowledged as one of the greatest and bravest mountaineers of all time. He has made numerous significant ascents in the Himalaya, including the first ascent of the south-west face of Everest, and has climbed the most difficult peaks around the world.

During Scott’s climbing career, his understanding of the culture and the people in the regions where he climbed grew as he formed strong bonds and relationships. Doug Scott founded the charity Community Action Nepal and spends much of his time fundraising for this cause. The proceeds of this talk will be donated to this charity. If you are interested in climbing and mountaineering or simply fascinated by what drives a person to take these amazing risks, you will not want to miss this illustrated talk.

Ian Rowe is a transatlantic rower who made the world's first attempt at the 3,000 mile unsupported crossing of the Atlantic from Africa to the Caribbean in under 30 days.

EVEREST THE HARD WAY

Location : THE EMBASSY OF NEPAL 

Tickets online here from Eventbrite

or contact deniseprior@canepal.org.uk

Legendary mountaineer, Doug Scott CBE, 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 in September 1975. Their epic climb would go down in mountaineering history as ‘Everest the Hard Way’.

On the descent their torches failed as they reverse climbed the Hillary Step, wind had blown snow into their steps and they were out of oxygen. Doug comments “the main thing was to get out of the wind so we dug a snow cave and sat on our rucksacks for the next nine hours in temperatures around minus 40°C. We managed to survive without sleeping bags, without oxygen and – as it turned out – without getting frostbite. The next result for me was to really widen the range of where and how I would climb in the future. I know for sure that from then on I would not be carrying cylinders of oxygen”.

Using a lightweight approach, Doug went on to continue his outstanding mountaineering career – making over forty first ascents in the Himalaya and Greater Ranges. He also felt a need to set out to help the mountain people of Nepal who had helped him achieve these climbs. He did this by setting up the charity Community Action Nepal. Doug will provide an update on the progress made with reconstruction of CAN projects, such as health posts and schools, which were so badly damaged by the Nepal earthquake on 25 April 2015. Doug will also be signing copies of his award winning autobiography Up And About.

The talk accompanies an exhibition of paintings Return to Langtang by Stephen King www.stephenkinggaller.com which is open free of charge to the public 15 March-1 April (see websites below for opening times, etc.). Stephen will also be giving a talk of the same name on 16 March. The exhibition and both talks are being hosted by the Embassy of Nepal in London as a part of their bicentennial celebration of relations between Nepal and the UK.

Proceeds from the evening including 50% of the moneys raised from the sale of Stephen King’s paintings throughout the exhibition, will be donated to Community Action Nepal to help support its work. CAN has a long history in the Langtang.

The Embassy will open its doors at 6.15 pm. Wine, beer and soft drinks will be served before the talk and during the interval; a cash donation to cover the cost of this is requested.

Accessibility: please note that the Main Hall is accessible only by the front steps to the front floor of the Embassy. We regret it is not accessible by wheelchair, nor is it equipped with an induction loop for those with hearing impairments.

For further information about the talk and exhibition look on www.nepembassy.org.uk   or www.canepal.org.uk
