In May 2012, British mountaineer Kenton Cool reached the summit of Everest for a record-breaking 10th time. He climbed to fulfill a 90-year-old olympic pledge, taking a gold medal awarded to the1922 British Everest Expedition to the summit of this iconic mountain just weeks before London 2012 kicked off.
Sixty years after Hilary first summited this iconic mountain, Kenton will be talking about his experiences on Everest and his twenty year career as one of the world’s leading high altitude mountain guides, including his 2007 expedition to lead Sir Ranulph to summit the infamous North Face of the Eiger.
An exhilarating evening of mountaineering stories and images from the top of the world.
