Touching the Void’s Simon Yates – My Mountain Life
On the remote Siula Grande in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates found himself in a desperately unenviable position. He was slowly being pulled off the mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope fifty metres below. His decision to cut the rope saved both their lives and with the publication of the book Touching The Void and the later film, both climbers became household names.
“Simon is a totally engaging speaker, who both entertains and inspires.”
