Tierra del Fuego: Climbing, sailing and horses at the Ends of the Earth
Andy Parkin, Simon Yates and Julian Freeman-Attwood take us to the remote and little known Cordillera Darwin on the tip of South America, which has received only a handful of expeditions over the years. Close to southern-most city in the world, Ushuaia, Charles Darwin and Eric Shipton were amongst the first to explore this area, with its bleak and weather-worn peaks, fjords and glaciers. Tonight we’ll hear about the history of its exploration and the expeditions and first ascents made there by three mountaineers who have been at the forefront of worldwide mountaineering for decades.
As usual the evening will finish with a Q&A.
