Through the people at Patagonia we have arranged a film showing of Mountain of Storms – a digitally re-mastered film featuring an ascent of Fitzroy by Yvon Chouinard and team in 1968. Robbie Phillips (a Scottish alpinist who has done some very hard routes around the world) and Patagonia ambassador will introduce the film and run a Q&A afterwards.
