Doug Scott Lecture Tour 2013

Doug Scott, who in 1975 was the first Englishman to climb Mount Everest, presents three new mountaineering lectures during his 2013 tour. Commencing on 22nd October in Liphook Hampshire, the 23 date tour finishes in Stirling on 11th December.

At his lecture ‘Big Walls and High Mountains’ Doug will be joined by lifelong climbing partner Paul ‘Tut’ Braithwaite. The pair will discuss their climbing across the globe, but most notably on Everest, Baffin Island’s Mount Asgard and Mount Kenya.

In his lecture ‘Significant and Joyous Moments of Being in the Mountains’ Doug will give a very personal account of his mountain life, including his battle for survival descending the Ogre with broken legs, the mental tricks that high altitude and low oxygen plays and the joys of standing on top of the world’. Doug said ‘ It is so often inferred by climbers who have not actually experienced Everest that it is not that special – how wrong is that assumption, since everyone I know that has been there has been quite changed by the experience, including myself. I look forward to sharing this and other important moments of my mountain life during my 2013 lecture tour.’

At November’s ‘First in the Himalaya’ events legendary climbers including Kurt Diemberger, Robert Schauer, Mick Fowler and Sandy Allan tell their tales spanning nearly 60 years of first ascents. Tour dates:
