  1. Sir Ranulph Fiennes Speaking Tour: Everest, The Eiger & More

    Leave a Comment

    When world-renowned polar explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes turned his attentions from the great frozen wilderness of the Poles to the world’s highest and most testing mountains he faced several challenges. In his early sixties and recovering from a very severe heart attack, he had no climbing experience and, not least, suffered from vertigo! This is the inspirational story of how he conquered those fears to summit two of the most dangerous mountains in the world.

    Sir Ranulph will be interviewed live on stage by acclaimed high altitude mountaineer and photographer Ian Parnell.  Ian filmed Ranulph on both mountains as they climbed.  Includes footage and images from both expeditions.
