MEF Annual Lecture, with Porters’ Progress UK:  ‘One Day As A Tiger: Alex MacIntyre and the birth of light and fast alpinism', by John Porter, introduced by Doug Scott,  on Tuesday 1st November, at 7pm, at the RGS
One Day As A Tiger, John Porter’s revelatory and poignant memoir of his friend Alex MacIntyre, shows mountaineering at its extraordinary best and tragic worst – and draws an unforgettable picture of a dazzling, argumentative and exuberant legend. 
One Day As A Tiger is a brilliant read on so many levels: a vivid and perceptive biography of one of the most talented an innovative climbers of his generation, but going much further to unveil a forgotten story which encompasses the breath-taking confidence of the anarchic and dynamic climbing culture that grew up during the cold war on both sides of the Iron Curtain’. Sir Chris Bonington
