'A Crawl Down The Ogre' - Mountaineering talk by Doug Scott CBE
Mountaineer Doug Scott CBE, will be telling the story of his legendary crawl down The Ogre in Pakistan’s Karakorum, following the first ever ascent of with Sir Chris Bonington in 1977. The Ogre is now recognised as one of the most difficult mountains in the world to climb. There were twenty further attempts before it was finally climbed again twenty four years later.
This epic tale of hard climbing and survival has now become part of mountaineering folklore.
Proceeds from the talk will go to supporting the work of Community Action Nepal. There will be a sale of signed framed mountain prints and Nepalese goods. Doug will also be signing copies of his award winning autobiography ‘Up and About’.
