Mount Everest Foundation Annual Lecture by Leo Houlding

The Spectre, Trans-Antarctic Expedition 2017-18 was an ambitious, first-of-its-kind project aiming to combine an unsupported, wind assisted journey of 1700 km across the interior of Antarctica with exploration and ascents of the extremely remote and technical Gothic Peaks (including a peak called the Spectre), a subgroup of the Queen Maud Mountains situated at the southern end of the Trans-Antarctic mountains.

The Gothic peaks are arguably some of the most remote summits on the face of the Earth. The Spectre (located at 86°12.255'S, 148° 28.294’W) is by far the most southerly rock spire on the planet, less than 100 km from the worlds most southerly rocks.

Leo Houlding, adventure professional and the expedition leader, will describe the highs and lows of this gruelling yet ultimately successful expedition, made with Jean Burgun from the Haute-Alps, France and Mark Sedon from Wanaka, New Zealand.

Exhibition Road doors and the Map Room cash bar open from 6 pm.

How about staging it in Sheffield/Manchester for a second showing for those of us who live in the outback of the UK.

Plenty of dates around the UK for this.

I think its being held in Sale, Manchester for the North West showing.
