A few days ago Paul Rose contacted us with deep regret at having to pull out of his forthcoming lecture for us at the Royal Geographical Society. He is being whisked away to film in Antarctica! Whilst we are also very sorry that he will no longer be available on 24th November, we are also very pleased to say that we have come up with an equally exciting speaker to take Paul’s place.
We are pleased to announce that Kenton Cool will now be this year’s speaker. Kenton Cool is acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest high altitude mountain guides. His record of success with clients on Everest is undoubtedly the best of any leader, having guided clients to the summit no less than nine times (two of these being back to back in the same week – a global first!). Kenton is one of the elite IFMGA guides with a reputation and willingness to take on the impossible. He has a reputation for being able to motivate his clients on the most challenging of climbs and notoriously guided Sir Ranulph Fiennes to the summit of Everest as well as the challenging North Face of the Eiger, despite Sir Ran’s morbid fear of heights.
We are sure you’ll be in for a real treat, so we hope you’ll join us for an evening of video and jaw-dropping tales of what it takes to be the man in charge at the top of the mountain.
