The next AC Lakes lecture is on Thursday 16th February, when Ronnie Legg joins us to talk about her first Himalayan expedition, see below.
Ronnie will be including details of how she prepared mentally and physically for the trip, as well as her choice of equipment, especially interesting since she’s an experienced technical clothing designer and currently Head of Clothing Design for Alpkit.
The final lecture in the current season is on 23rd March when Alan Hinkes will be talking about From Lakeland Climbing to Challenge 8000m.

Thursday 23rd March: Alan Hinkes – From Lakeland Climbing to Challenge 8000m
Alan was the first, and so far only, Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s 8000m mountains, an extraordinary achievement.
Alan talks about his Lake District adventures and extreme exploits on the highest Himalayan and Karakoram mountains.
As a Yorkshireman, Alan’s talk is humorous, inspiring and entertaining, illustrated with stunning photos and video clips. It covers his passion for mountaineering and the hills of Britain, rock climbing, fell-walking and ice climbing, as well as potholing and caving.
