Like the sound of alpine mountaineering but don’t know what’s involved? Already climbed Mont Blanc but want to learn more? Then the BMC’s Alpine Lecture tour could be just what you need.
Sponsored by Berghaus the BMC Alpine Lectures are touring the UK at the end of April and beginning of May. With the excellent line up of Tim Neill (British Mountain Guide) and Rob Greenwood (Alpinist) these lectures are set to inspire any would-be alpine warriors. Topics covered include: best areas to visit; glacier travel; weather; huts and bivis; avalanche awareness; route selection; and the dark art of ‘moving together’.
There will be a free prize draw each evening for audience members with prizes from Berghaus and The Alpine Club.
