Simon Richardson: Looking Around New Corners in the Alps and Canada
Thursday 07 December 2023, 07:30pm - 10:30pm
Thursday 07 December 2023


Simon Richardson's climbing career has been defined by the search for the new. As a Scottish winter climber and the operator of 'Scottish Winter', a blog detailing first winter ascents, he is immersed in the culture of new routing. But his sights are not limited to his native Scotland and he has achieved notable first ascents throughout the globe, often in areas and on peaks previously considered to be "climbed out".

In this lecture, Simon will share details of his new routes on the Grandes Jorasses and Mont Blanc as well as first ascents on Monarch and Mount Waddington in the Canadian Coast Mountains.

Venue: Outside Cafe, Main Rd, Hathersage, Hope Valley S32 1BB

All are welcome to attend and the talk is free for AC members on production of your AC membership card and students on production of a valid NUS card. Non-members are asked to make a donation of £3 towards the cost of the lecture.
