Stephen Venables Lecture – Life After Everest

November 3, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

After climbing a new route up the world’s highest mountain, reaching the summit alone without oxygen and surviving a record bivouac at 28,000 feet, you might think that Stephen Venables would have decided to hang up his boots.  Far from it.  Record-breaking success on Everest was just the preparation for many more adventures around the world.

In this new show, illustrated with stunning photos and film clips, Stephen recounts his narrow escape from death in the Indian Himalaya, first ascents in Nepal, rockclimbing from the Arctic to the Namib desert, and his most recent sailing expeditions to the coastal mountains of Tierra del Fuego, South Georgia and Antarctica.

Climbing with such legendary figures as Chris Bonington, Reinhold Messner and John Roskelley, and following in the steps of explorers like Ernest Shackleton, Stephen continues to embrace a life of adventure amongst some of the most remote, beautiful landscapes on earth.
