Es Tresidder is a top climber and fell runner. He is also a regular contributor to UKClimbing.com and an environmental consultant.
He recently explored some of the environmental issues surrounding climbers in his comprehensive UKC article: Environmentalism and Climbing: An Uneasy Partnership.
As a follow up to that article, Es is going live on the UKC forums this Friday (September 11th) to answer any questions and to discuss any environmental issues surrounding our sport.
Es will be live on the forums from 9am until 5pm.
As a follow on to this Q&A we hope to run an audio interview conducted by Es with Patagonia founder and American climbing legend Yvon Chouinard - watch this space!
