Big Wall Rock Climbing: Doug Scott

Best known for being the first British climber to summit Everest in 1975, Doug Scott is also an outstanding Big Wall climber including major ascents on the vertical and overhanging rock of the Dolomites, Norway, Yosemite, Patagonia, Baffin Island and the Himalaya.

In this globetrotting lecture, illustrated by Doug’s dramatic photography, you’ll hear how he went from climbing crags near his boyhood home in Nottingham using his mother’s washing line as a rope, to adventures on the mile high vertical granite of the Arctic’s Mount Asgard - without the washing line!

His stories chart the changes in climbing styles over the last 40 years and feature a “who’s who” cast of world class climbing partners including Peter Habeler and Paul ‘Tut’ Braithwaite. Hold on tight……

Fundraiser for Community Action Nepal and Otley Courthouse.
