Peru mountain

My Mountain Life by Simon Yates

Overview

On the remote Siula Grande in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates found himself in a desperate position. He was slowly being pulled off the Peru mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope 50 metres below. His action in cutting the rope saved both their lives in the epic of survival that followed and with the publication of the book "Touching The Void", both climbers became well known names.

Come along and witness Simon Yate's tireless journey from a mountain in Peru to some of the remotest surroundings on the planet, and share with him the drama, excitement and beauty of modern, lightweight alpinism. Told with wit, humour and illustrated with images and video collected on his great climbs.
