© Lukaz Warzecha At a lecture sponsored by GORE-TEX«, Dave MacLeod and climbing partner Andy Turner will present their first free ascent of the Long Hope route at London's Royal Geographical Society on February 8th. The lecture will cover all aspects of their first free ascent of the Long Hope route, St John's Head, Hoy last year and be followed by a screening of the Longhope film - already winner of last years People's Choice award at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival.
At 1150 foot St Johns Head is the tallest sea cliff in the UK. It was first climbed in 1970 by climber and poet Ed Drummond together with Oliver Hill. They took 7 days to climb the cliff, sleeping on ledges and in hammocks along the way. 40 years later, Dave MacLeod and Andy Turner set out to climb the cliff in a single day.
The lecture, which is also being supported by GORE-TEX« brand partner Mountain Equipment and specialist retailer Cotswold Outdoor, will be followed by a special screening of the Long Hope film presented by Filmmaker Paul Diffley/Hot Aches Productions.
