7:30 for 8:00pm Annual Dinner
Our principle guest in friendship is Wcjciech ('Voyteck') Kurtyka, one of the pioneers of alpine style climbing of the biggest walls in the greater ranges. In 1985 he climbed Shining Wall on Gasherbrum IV, which Climbing magazine declared was 'the greatest achievement of mountaineering in the twentieth century'. In 2016 he received the Piolet d'Or for lifetime achievement in mountaineering.
£35 per person reduced to £24 for those aged 38 and under on the date of the dinner. This is for a three-course dinner (excluding drink, for which there is a cash bar).
