Talk by Will Sim

Will Sim will be talking at The Saints Rooms, Cockermouth in Cumbria on Wednesday 15th February at 7pm. Proceeds from the talk will go towards supporting Lorton After School Club.

Come along and enjoy listening to his fascinating story. It’s all about the mileage…… At 22, Will Sim is perhaps the most experienced young British alpinist around. Raised in St Bees, Cumbria but now based in Chamonix, Will has racked up an impressive list of ascents in a light and fast alpine style.

With a particular interest in big North Faces, he has climbed over 20 Grandes Courses, including quick ascents of test pieces such as No Siesta on the Grandes Jorasses. The talk will be really enjoyable for anyone with an interest in the great outdoors, and is aimed at climbers and non-climbers alike. There’ll be some rock and ice, The Alps, Patagonia and Alaska and much much more. He’ll be giving us a taste of his amazing ability to climb hard and fast at high altitude!
