On the remote Siula Grande in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates found himself in a desperately unenviable position. He was slowly being pulled off the mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope 50 metres below.
His decision to cut the rope saved both their lives and, with the publication of the book Touching The Void and the later film, both climbers became household names.
Over 30 years later, Simon is still a very active exploratory climber and guide. Come along and witness Simon’s tireless journey from that mountain in Peru to some of the remotest on the planet and share with him the drama, excitement and beauty of modern, lightweight alpinism.
