LEGENDARY mountaineer Doug Scott CBE speaks about his greatest and most arduous adventure on this exciting lecture tour, coming to Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Thursday, November 2 at 7.30pm.

Over the course of his mountaineering career, Doug Scott has reached the summit of 40 peaks, has made 45 expeditions to the high mountains of Asia and is known for the biggest and most challenging achievement of all - he was the first (alongside Chris Bonington) to climb Everest by its enormous South West Face.

The subsequent descent in the dark immediately became an epic. Doug broke both legs just above the ankles.

A storm blew in lasting five days, during which time Chris smashed his ribs and contracted pneumonia. It took eight hard days to reach Base Camp. It was 24 years before The Ogre was climbed again.

An inspiring talk for the adventure-minded. Proceeds from the talk will support reconstruction of Community Action Nepal’s projects in Nepal.

Tickets to see Doug Scott: A Crawl Down the Ogre are £13.50 (£12) and are available to book from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online or via smart phone at www.mwldan.co.uk or via the new Mwldan app.
