A talk by JAMES OGILVIE on Monday 25 April
at 7.30 in the Millennium Room, Cramond Kirk
As I stepped up to the top of Antarctica, the true scale, majesty and magnificence of the white continent were overwhelming. On one side the curvature of the earth could be discerned along the distant horizon. On the other side, remote peaks – most never touched by human boots – stretched out below me. I was in heaven – or at least as near to heaven on earth as I was likely to get. It was, finally, the end of an era, the end of an Antarctic Adventure and the end of my Seven Summits odyssey.”
James Ogilvie’s passion for wild places and ‘getting high’ shines through in his account of his climbs of The Seven Summits and other mountains.
