Derek Buckle - First Ascents in the East Karakoram
Tuesday 12 February 2019, 07:30pm
Contact Timothy Elson
Tuesday 12 February 2019

Since 2008 Derek Buckle has organised numerous exploratory mountaineering expeditions to the Indian Himalaya where he and team members successfully climbed many major peaks for the first time. In 2016 and 2017 he eventually managed to secure climbing permits for the East Karakoram, a sensitive area for which access was severely restricted for non-Indian nationals until relatively recently. In this talk he will describe highlights from his two exploratory expeditions to the Nubra Valley region of Ladakh which resulted in the first ascents of several hitherto unclimbed 6,000 m peaks.

This lecture is held in conjunction with the SMC and JMCS 07:30pm start


The venue is the Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2JL..
