Monday, 8th December at 7.30 Boat of Garten Community Hall – Tricounis to Torquing – 40 years of Scottish Winter Climbing by Andy Nisbet i

We bring the first half of our programme to close on Monday, 8th December at 7.30 pm in the Community Hall with one of Britain’s foremost winter mountaineers sharing his lifetime of experiences and adventures. Tricounis to Torquing – 40 years of Scottish Winter Climbing by Andy Nisbet is a must attend event for anyone interested in our mountains – not just climbers but all who enjoy stunning mountain images and wonder at how and why some people expose themselves to such risk and exhilaration.

This will be an autobiographical story in pictures plotting the progression from hill walker to renown winter climber, through the development of modern climbing techniques and equipment that have pushed back the boundaries of what is possible. A rare opportunity to hear from one of our truly great Winter climbers.

Andy is a resident in the Boat of Garten, is Scotland’s most prolific winter climber having climbed nearly 1,000 new winter routes (more than anyone else) over a 40 year period, was a mountaineering instructor and past president of the Scottish Mountaineering Club and a writer of climbing guidebooks.
With winter upon us, this is a fitting climax to our pre- xmas programme – yet another “not to be missed” talk and presentation.

AND – our Programme will resume on Monday, 9th February 2015! Watch out for details.

Admission £5 (children under 16 free with adult)
