British climber and mountaineer Nick Bullock will be in-store at Ellis Brigham Covent Garden on Tuesday 5th June to celebrate the launch of his new book, ‘Tides – a Climber’s Voyage’. Nick’s talk will take you on a journey from the euphoric highs of first ascents and the companionship of climbing with friends, to self-doubt and post-expedition lows.
As one of the UK’s leading climbers, Nick Bullock has made bold repeats of many of the country’s most renowned traditional summer rock climbs. In Scottish winter he has climbed hundreds of routes and many new ones including ‘Nevermore’ on Lochnagar – with a grade of X/10 it is one of the hardest routes ever climbed ground up. In the European Alps he has climbed approximately forty routes, both established classics and new lines, and he is veteran of over twenty-three expeditions to the greater ranges.
It is in the big hills where Nick has truly demonstrated his imagination and ability, making significant ascents and failing on some audacious attempts around the world with partners such as Jules Cartwright, Al Powell, Kenton Cool, Andy Houseman, Matt Helliker and Paul Ramsden. In September 2017, alongside Ramsden, he made the first ascent of the North Buttress on Nyainqentangla South East in Tibet, for which they were awarded a prestigious Piolet d’Or.
