In a career spanning twenty years Simon Yates climbing and travelling has taken him from Alaska in the west to Australia in the east, from the Canadian Arctic in the north to the tip of South America. During this time he has been fortunate enough to climb with some of Britain s most influential contemporary mountaineers. In this lecture Simon will take a humorous and philosophical look at some of the more notable experiences over his years as a mountaineer, accompanied by a stunning selection of slides collected during his travels. The Wild Within illustrates his insatiable appetite for adventure and exploratory mountaineering. Using images and footage from his expeditions he'll recount his experiences of teaming up with mountaineering legends Doug Scott, Andy Parkin and Joe Simpson and his perpetual quest to seek out the world's few remaining wildernesses.Performers Simon Yates.
