Guy is a leading Scottish activist and we are delighted to begin this winter series with a presentation by Guy highlighting his Scottish climbing. If you have a copy of The Great Mountain Crags of Scotland compiled by Guy and Adrian Crofton then you will know the calibre of the man and the quality of the climbing which he will describe.
Quaker Meeting House located at 7 Victoria Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2JL.
Lectures start at 7.30pm
The pre-lecture tradition of entertaining the speaker before the talks continues this season. If you would like to join the guest and those from the Alpine Club, Edinburgh Section of the Junior Mountaineering Club of Scotland or the Scottish Mountaineering Club before-hand, for a meal then please contact Tim or Zoe before-hand to book a place. Howie’s Restaurant a few doors away from the QMH is the usual preferred venue.
