Internationally acclaimed mountaineering author, Simon Yates, is gearing himself up to present a lecture, My Mountain Life.

The Isle of Skye is somewhere he has visited many times, his most notable visit being to complete a winter traverse of the infamous Cuillin Ridge some twenty five years ago in his early climbing days. Simon has also toured to Glasgow, Dundee, Stornoway, Lerwick, Ullapool with his final night in Portree.

Best known for his harrowing expedition to the Andes documented in ‘Touching the Void’, Simon is one of the most famous and accomplished exploratory mountaineers of his time. ‘Life and death’ is a common phrase used to express a difficult decision, but few people ever really have to face the reality of that choice. Simon is a man who had to take such a decision, whilst trapped on his descent from Peru’s Siula Grande with climbing partner Joe Simpson.

A crofting surgery will be held at SCF Kyle HQ on Thursday 16 November.
