Into the Wild

Mountaineer Simon Yates is back at Buxton Opera House on Monday, at 7.30pm, to promote his new book.

In The Wild Within, Simon recounts his experiences of teaming up with legends Doug Scott, Andy Parkin and Joe Simpson. With his dry wit and humorous approach, Simon captivates the audience with exhilarating stories from his most recent expeditions to Alaska, Greenland and Canada where he pioneered three first ascents and narrowly missed crashing his ski-plane on the Alaskan-Yukon border.

Simon also explores how new technology has changed the face of mountaineering and adventure. Using images and footage from his expeditions, he will take the audience on a journey into the world’s few remaining wildernesses.

Tickets, priced £12 and £14, are available on 0845 127 2190 or online at
