Sir Chris Bonington in Conversation

Sunday, February 3, 2019 - 14:00 to 15:00
Destinations London 2019 Schedule - Stanfords Travel Writers Festival - Stanfords Travel Writers Festival

Introduction

Britain’s greatest mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington talks to Paul Blezard about his career spanning six decades of climbing peaks, across all continents. He has undertaken nineteen Himalayan expeditions, including four to Mount Everest which he climbed in 1985 at the age of fifty, and has made many first ascents in the Alps and greater ranges of the world. Along the way we will be fascinated by his many daring climbs, near-death adventures, and the many luminaries of the mountain fraternity he has climbed with.

After the talk, Chris will be signing copies of his book Ascent at the ‘Signings at Stanfords’ stand.
