Big Walls: Faces and Friends
Doug Scott & Leo Houlding
Supported by the Wainwright Society In aid of Community Action Nepal
Sunday 28 November, 7.30pm

Best known for Everest, Doug Scott was also an outstanding Big Wall climber with climbs including major ascents on the vertical and overhanging rock of the Dolomites, Norway, Yosemite, Patagonia and Baffin Island. Joined by Leo Houlding, one of today’s leading “Big Wallers”, they’ll focus on their adventures on the mile high, vertical granite of the Arctic’s Mount Asgard and look at how things have developed – from eliminating “aid” to BASE jumping the face.
