Simon Yates Latest Speaking Tour On His Last Ten Years Of Expeditions To Unclimbed Peaks

Tieing in with the release of his third book in March, The Wild Within covers the last ten years of Simon’s expeditions to unclimbed peaks in the Cordillera Darwin in Tierra del Fuego, the Wrangell St-Elias ranges on the Alaskan-Yukon border, and Eastern Greenland. Laced with dry humour, he relates his own experience of the rapid commercialisation of mountain wilderness, while grappling with his new-found commitments as a family man. At the same time he must endure his role in the film adaptation of Joe Simpson’s Touching The Void, having to relive the events of that trip to Peru for a Hollywood director.

Recounting his experiences of teaming up with mountaineering legends Doug Scott, Andy Parkin and Joe Simpson, Yates focuses on the significance of the mountain environment and his perpetual quest to seek out the world’s few remaining wildernesses.
