Stephen Venables

Mountaineer Stephen Venables is one of the most accomplished mountaineers and explorers of our time. He was the first Briton to climb Everest without oxygen and has summited many 5000+ metre peaks.

In this illustrated talk, Venables draws on his five expeditions to the sub-Antarctic island to South Georgia, bringing alive the story of Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated Endurance expedition.

Venables retraced that route twice, and made first ascents of several peaks on the island. With classic archive images, stunning modern photography and film, this is a must-see presentation.

Tickets: R100 per person, both MCSA members and non-members
