To kick start the year’s climbing Dublin University Climbing Club are proud to welcome one of the world’s leading climbers, Scottish climber Dave MacLeod to give us his inspirational lecture How soon is now? on Thursday 28th January 2010 in the Synge Theatre in the arts Block in Trinity College at 8 pm (doors at 7:30pm but please arrive early to avoid disappointment).
Tickets for the lecture are available at the door at the very reasonable price of €3 for DUCC members and €5 for non-members. There will also be a raffle with some Mountain Equipment prizes sponsored by the Great Outdoors in Dublin.
‘How Soon is Now’ – Having climbed the world’s hardest and riskiest trad routes
for several years, Dave MacLeod asks himself why the desire to keep taking risks
and looking for harder rock climbs to attempt keeps getting stronger. Dave will
try to show us why he loves the very delayed gratification of impossible seeming
climbs so much, why getting to the top is one of the least important parts of
the picture and show us some E11 climbing, on pitch 18 of his current project.
