Leo Houlding in Antarctica

A British adventurer whose climbing career began as a boy of ten will be talking about his exploits at The Dukes in Lancaster on Tuesday.

Leo Houlding has climbed the most difficult and highest mountains in the world since scaling the Old Man of Hoy aged 10 – 21 years ago.

In search of ever greater adventure, last year took him to the wildest, least accessible and most contrasting corners of Earth - deep into the Amazon jungle and to the centre of the Antarctic wilderness.

He will talk about this last adventure and his most difficult challenge to date – climbing Ulvetanna,‘the wolf’s tooth’, in a rarely visited area of Antarctica.

From the Amazon to Antarctica will be illustrated with photography and film footage shot by award-winning film-maker Alastair Lee.
