© Berghaus, Nov 2013 Berghaus has given a boost to the 2013 Alpine Club Symposium. The popular annual event will be held in the Palace Hotel, Buxton on 30 November, with a full schedule of presentations, speakers and debate about international mountaineering and climbing. Berghaus has agreed to be headline sponsor of the symposium, which will be opened by Mick Fowler, one of its sponsored athletes, and president of the Alpine Club.
The 2013 Alpine Club Symposium promises a varied and stimulating programme, with contributions from eight speakers, including the likes of Andy Kirkpatrick, Barbara Swindin, Twid Turner and Simon Richardson. The event will run all day on 30 November and will be followed by the Alpine Club AGM and dinner, with guest speaker Catherine Destivelle.
