Catherine Moorehead: Mountain Guru - The Life of Doug Scott
Thursday 29 February 2024, 07:30pm - 10:30pm
Thursday 29 February 2024

Catherine describes the life and character of one of our greatest climbers and humanitarians, based on her recent biography of Doug, 'Mountain Guru'. She traces his early influences from his upbringing in Nottingham through apprentice climbs in the UK, Alps, Africa, Turkey and Afghanistan, through his 'big wall' climbs and his new routes on major peaks, to his expeditions in lesser-known areas. She describes Doug's 30 year involvement with Community Action Nepal and assesses his legacy following his death in 2020.

Signed copies of the book will be available (£20 AC members, £25 non-members, please bring cash if you’d like to purchase a copy) and there will be a Community Action Nepal stall selling some Nepalese items and hoping for your support!
