Andy Inglis: White Lines
Tuesday 10 January 2017, 07:30pm
Contact Viv Scott
Tuesday 10 January 2017

SMC member Andy Inglis is a Scottish ‘hard man’.  His winter climbs top out at Grade VIII and are never below V. 

His summer standards rise to E5 and he has impressive experience in the  Alps, Lofotens, Canada and Norway. His talk is entitled White Lines  and will be predominantly about modern Scottish winter mixed climbing  and steep skiing away from the crowds, influences and the future. 

This should be good!

This evening will be hosted by Viv Scott and if you wish to join him and the speaker for a meal beforehand then please email him 24 hours in
