For your entertainment, Wolverhampton Mountaineering Club brings you the opening slide show of their 2012 programme: Roses, Battles and Mountains presented by Dave Wilkinson.
Accounts of two expeditions to unclimbed 7000 metre peaks in the Eastern Karakoram; Location: Northern Ladhak, the northern-most bit of India.
See the world’s only venue for high-altitude mountaineering in a war zone
The world’s biggest glacier outside the polar regions
An approach journey involving the crossing of six high passes
A region so sparsely populated, it was hard to find anyone to employ as porters
When is a yurt not a yurt?
What has the Dam-busters got to do with this remote asiatic region?
Why is the region’s biggest river called the “River of Death”?
See a hill speckled with bird-poo;
And an elephant on top of a high mountain.
For all these exotic sights, and many more, come along to the Wheatsheaf, 8.30 pm, Tuesday Jan 10th.
Note: We will be continuing with the raffles in aid of Mountain Rescue at each of the slide shows, if anyone can help by donating a prize it would be much appreciated.
