Echoes and Beyond. I think that’s what I’ll call this lecture, although it will no-doubt change with each airing. You may think I’ve written the dates below to advertise, but actually its to remind me when and where I need to be.
If you’re interested there will be more info I’m sure on the links below and on http://www.mountain-equipment.co.uk/home.asp or http://www.v-publishing.co.uk/ I will not have anything on the blog I don’t think because from the 30th of September I’ll be in Nepal for two months.
What the talk will include (Some of this could/will change as I’m putting it together now) is a couple of stories from the book, possibly a reading from the book, some anecdotes about the writing procedure, then I’ll cover some more up-to-date stuff, possibly new routing and climbing in Scotland last winter, featuring a bit of film by James Dunn, The Slovak Direct in Alaska, some music to Canadian ice and mixed and I’ll have a 12 minute film put together by Ray Wood and Ray Saunders about climbing Melody, a hard rock climb on the Lleyn Peninsula in Wales.
Please don’t ask me to do any lectures in February or March or April or May… Well, in-fact for the rest of the year until November, I’ll be out climbing, after all, that’s what its about innit
