IMC Winter Talk – Michal Samsel – Picos de Europa

30 November 2017 @ 21:00 - 22:00

Free

Michal Samsel is back for another evening in the Teachers Club on the 30th November at 9.00pm in room 6.

Last January Michal gave us a powerful presentation recounting his ice climbing exploits in Canada. For this talk he will enthral us with an account of his mountaineering adventures in Picos de Europa; a mysterious, often rainy, place in northern Spain that everyone seems to have heard about, but very few ever go to explore.

‘In this short talk I’ll try to describe our short, week long adventure in the region, where during the period of 6 days there we ascended and combined over 1600 vertical meters of sharp, poorly protected limestone (including climbing the East face of Spain’s most famous mountain – Naranjo de Bulnes/Pico Urriellu).’

Admission is free and all are welcome!
