My climbing club, The Rucksack Club, is fortunate to have Harriet Tuckey speaking on Tuesday 5th February at the Heaton Moor Sports' Club, Stockport. The title of her lecture is: "Everest, the first ascent; the untold story of Griffith Pugh, the man who made it possible"
Harriet is an excellent speaker and gives a fascinating lecture about her father's considerable influence on mountaineering, based on her award winning book [Boardman Tasker and Mountain Literature Award winner]. This is a story all those interested in the development of high altitude climbing should hear! As well as this, Griffith Pugh was also intimately involved in the development of understanding of hypothermia in the UK hills.
If you are in the area and would like to join us, please come ... tickets can be bought on the door.
A copy of the poster, which includes all the details, is attached below...
