Guest Speaker Helps Rescue Team Celebrate 50 Years

Bolton Mountain Rescue Team are delighted to be able to welcome Simon Yates; the explorer, mountaineer and author, to tell tales of his escapades in some of the remotest regions on the planet. Simon has had many years’ experience of climbing mountains on every continent and exploring some of the world’s most uninhabitable areas. He first came to prominence when, whilst climbing Suila Grande in the Peruvian Andes with Jo Simspon, an epic rescue mission turned into near tragedy when Simon believed his friend to have died in a deep crevasse and needed to leave him on the mountainside. These exploits were made into a book and a film ‘Touching the Void’. Since then Simon has gone on to achieve , more successful journeys.

The evening will be held on Wednesday 11th April 2018, at De Vere Whites Hotel. The talk will start at 7:30 but prior to that there will be the opportunity to meet Simon in person and maybe even snap up a signed copy of one of his books of his adventures. Tickets cost £7.50 and are available by emailing
