Colin Beechey: Alpine Classics No. 6
Contact Derek Buckle
Tuesday 12 June 2018

This lecture is the 6th given by Colin in recent years, and will describe a further selection of Alpine climbs mainly in the AD to D grades, on mountains above and below 4000m, in all regions of the Alps. Colin has been climbing for over half a century, but due to work and family commitments has only taken short Alpine holidays, of 2 weeks duration or less. Hopefully the lecture will show that even in a short holiday a lot can be achieved with a combination of good luck and keen climbing partners.
