Internationally acclaimed mountaineer, Simon Yates, comes to Waterside, Sale with his visually stunning and hugely entertaining show My Mountain Life. 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.
Since this fateful expedition in 1985, Simon has gone on to climb in some of the most remote and rarely explored mountain ranges of the world. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, Alaska to Central Asia, there is hardly a significant range he has not visited. His three books (Against the Wall, Flame of Adventure and The Wild Within) not only chart over 30 years of mountaineering exploits, but also provide personal reflections on topical issues of the time such as how digital communication has changed the experience of mountaineering.
