A recent president of the Alpine Club, Mick is well known for his exploits in Scotland. His lectures and articles are characterised by much humour of the self-deprecating style. Don’t miss this one. This will be the Scottish premiere of Mick’s lecture. We don’t know what it is yet, but as he is attempting the unclimbed North Face of Hagshu in Kishtwar this autumn, some material from this adventure may end up on the screen here.
