LONDON LECTURE. Niall McCann: Great Elevations - a tale of adventure in high places
Tuesday 12 January 2016, 07:30pm
Tuesday 12 January 2016


In this talk Niall describes some of the unique thrills available to those who venture into the world of big wall climbing and associated gravity-defying activities. From multi-day climbing on the granite walls of Yosemite National Park to rope-jumping into the Corrieshalloch Gorge in Scotland, and speed flying in the Caledonian Alps of Greenland, Great Elevations is a story of overcoming a natural fear of heights, in order to experience the kinds of things that can only be experienced by neglecting the most basic of self-preservation instincts.
