Simon Richardson's climbing career has been defined by the search for the new. As a Scottish winter climber and the operator of 'Scottish Winter', a blog detailing first winter ascents, he is immersed in the culture of new routing. But his sights are not limited to his native Scotland and he has achieved notable first ascents throughout the globe, often in areas and on peaks previously considered to be "climbed out".

In this lecture, Simon will share details of his new routes on the Grandes Jorasses and Mont Blanc as well as first ascents on Monarch and Mount Waddington in the Canadian Coast Mountains.
Join us in the Nova Scotia pub from 6.30pm for a meal and drink. Lecture starts at 7.30pm in the upstairs room.
