Slideshow and Film Night: TOMORROW, Tuesday 10th November

Dear Members,
We will have a slideshow tomorrow night about a wintery ascent up the SE face of Nelion that MCK member Duncan and former MCK member Emmanuel did last week. This will be followed by a short 20min film called the Swiss Machine:
"Ueli Steck, arguably the greatest speed alpinist ever, dances up daunting faces in the Himalaya and the Alps, including his record-smashing ascent of The Eiger North Face. Ueli also teams up with fellow soloist Alex Honnold to break records on El Capitan"

Dear Members,

Be there at 8pm to watch "The Ascent". Where: Casual Bites, Westlands (directions in the previous post)

The real-life adventure of a dashing Italian soldier who escapes a British prisoner-of-war camp because he dreams of climbing 17,000-foot Mt. Kenya and planting the Italian flag at the summit. The obsessive British camp commander pursues him, and the two men are locked in a battle of wills, fueled by honor and their love for the same woman.
