Wednesday 11 February. Adrian Dye & Hannah Moulton: Kyrgyzstan - Big horns, Big snowfall and Big unclimbed peaks
Adrian relates how an inexperienced and (mostly!) young British team travelled to a remote area of Kyrgyzstan in search of exploratory mountaineering. They returned with alpine rock routes up to HVS, alpine snow and ice routes to Difficile and six previously unclimbed summits
This talk considers both the quantitative and qualitative nature of women’s alpine climbing and their place within the mountaineering community as well as wider society in the nineteenth century.
