DO NOT MISS - 27th Jan 2015 - Slideshow by a world renowned climber

Show starts at 8:30pm. Come early and get your drinks in time.
Venue: Casual Bites, Westlands (see other posts for directions)

Pat Littlejohn's climbing career began in the 1960's on the sea cliffs of South West England where from the age of 16 he began putting up serious and challenging climbs. Through the following decades he became Britain's pre-eminent sea-cliff explorer, notching up well over 1000 first ascents in Devon, Cornwall, Pembroke and North Wales. Having climbed all over the world on peaks up to 7000m, in recent years he has become a devotee of climbing in Africa, putting up climbs in an adventurous style without bolts or pegs. 

The talk will focus on adventurous rock climbing from early days on the sea-cliffs to African big walls, with particular focus on the first ascent of Dark Safari (E6) on the 600m north face of Mt Poi in Kenya, one of the hardest climbs of its type in Africa.

28th Oct Slideshow

Over June and July of this year, Vadim and two friends embarked upon a grand tour of some of the best climbing the US has to offer. With a difficult alpine endeavour, the Incredible Hulk, as their eventual goal, they honed their skills at legendary climbing areas - from Devil's Tower to Indian Creek, and eventually in the Valley itself. 

This trip had it all: desert towers, backcountry walls, rockfall misadventures, a tent with a porch, and a couple of dudes in denim short shorts. 

Come and witness what you're missing in the American West!

30th September Slideshow

In November 2013, Florian Keller left Nairobi in a 1997 Toyota Landcruiser. His destination - Rio de Janeiro and the 2014 Football World Cup. 199 days and 42,000 km later, he crossed the border from Bolivia to Brazil, three days before the opening match of the World Cup.

While the August slide show covered the journey from Nairobi to the Pacific Ocean, the September slide show will bring the second part of the journey to life. 

After exploring awesome pre-colonial Aztec and Maya sites in Mexico, Florian and his travel companions crossed Central America and climbed some of its hundreds of stunning volcanos. A final sea journey passing dozens of pristine tropical islands of the San Blas archipelago took them from Panama to Colombia. From here, they drove along the mighty Andes through Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, crossing en route countless high altitude mountain passes and exploring some of the most spectacular mountain scenery on earth. 

Venue: Casual Bites @ 8:00pm

All are welcome
