Colin Beechey: Alpine Classics Part 7
Tuesday 22 October 2019, 07:30pm
Contact Derek Buckle
Tuesday 22 October 2019

AC member Colin has been climbing for over half a century, and has enjoyed many Alpine holidays. Following on from his talk last year, Colin will describe a further selection of classic alpine routes, some popular and some less well known, mainly in the AD to D grades in all regions of the Alps. Included will be an ascent of the Aiguille Blanche and the Peuterey Arete to the Summit of Mt Blanc, a route best done sooner rather than later if you are collecting Alpine 4000ers!
