SPECTRE: A trans-Antarctic Expedition – Lecture by Leo Houlding

November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Spectre, Trans-Antarctic Expedition 2017-18 was an ambitious, first of its kind project, aiming to combine an unsupported, wind assisted journey of 1700 km across the interior of Antarctica, with exploration and ascents of the extremely remote and technical Gothic Peaks. This included a peak named the Spectre, by far the most southerly rock spire on the planet. Come and hear Leo Houlding describing the highs and lows of this gruelling yet ultimately successful expedition. In aid of the Mount Everest Foundation and Porters’ Progress UK.
