Alan Hinkes OBE presents Kangchenjunga Finale and the 8000m Peaks
Hinkes is the first Briton to climb all the world’s fourteen 8000m peaks. His final peak was Kangchenjunga, climbed in 2005, fittingly almost 50 years to the day after George Band and Joe Brown made the first ascent in 1955.
To include a tribute to the Trust's much loved late Chairman, George Band OBE.
