/ Sir Ranulph Fiennes & Ian Parnell Talks June/July
When world-renowned polar explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes turned his attentions from the great frozen wilderness of the Poles to two of the world’s highest and most testing mountains he faced several challenges. In his early sixties and recovering from a very severe heart attack, he had no climbing experience and, not least, suffered from vertigo!
This summer, Sir Ranulph will be be appearing at 13 venues around the UK talking about how he overcame these challenges to summit both the North Face of the Eiger and Mount Everest. He will be interviewed live on stage by acclaimed high altitude mountaineer, photographer and Associate Editor of Climb magazine Ian Parnell. Ian filmed Ranulph on both mountains as they climbed and the talks will include Ian's brilliant footage and images from both expeditions.
