The Rucksack Club and Alpine Club, two of Britain’s oldest mountaineering clubs, combine to take you up the classic six great north faces of the Alps, with accounts from 6 different members. As ticklists go this is short, sweet and an easy one to remember, but containing formidable and historic routes, it’s not such an easy one to complete and has become the benchmark for the serious alpinist. It’s the Matterhorn, Eiger, Grandes Jorasses; the Petit Dru, Cima Grande di Laveredo, and Piz Badile.
In Part 1, we are hosted by the Rucksack Club to celebrate what has become known as “the trilogy”: Matterhorn, Grandes Jorasses, and the Eiger, with speakers Andy Kirkpatrick, Martin Cooper, Nick Wallis, Bill Deakin and Tony Rhodes. As usual, we will finish with a Q&A.
Club members can participate directly in the Zoom discussion – watch your email for the link or check the Rucksack Club Facebook Group post [NOTE This is NOT the same link as the usual Tuesday evening session]
We’re also opening the event to the whole climbing community. You can watch the livestream at the following YouTube Event link: https://youtu.be/VKy9HKhFwTU and also pose questions to the speakers via the comments function.
