We’re so psyched Outdoor Research is bringing this awesome Brit over for the Ice Fest!Guy’s presentation will give the “insider’s view” on Scottish winter climbing – the basics, the ethics, and the different styles of climbing to be found in different parts of the country. He will do this by describing some of his best adventures, which he has been lucky enough to share with some of the scenes most ‘interesting’ characters. His focus is on the more remote, longer and committing climbs rather than the short hard technical test pieces. He published a book on Scottish mountain crags a couple of years ago, and of the 40 or so crags included there’s only two he hasn’t climbed on and they don’t have any winter routes! He will most definitely give a pretty unique insight into what Scotland in winter has to offer. More than anything though what he really hopes to show folks is the solitude, the unspoiled landscape and the wild spaces you can find when you’re out winter climbing in Scotland – and still be home in time for breakfast the next day!Guy will be presenting on Saturday night at Theater in the Wood. Doors open at 6:30pm. $10 per person.
