Description

Explorers Club Public Lecture Series with Adrian Hayes

British adventurer, mountaineer, and polar explorer Adrian Hayes tells the deeply moving story of his two attempts on K2 – the savage mountain.

Located in the Karakorum Himalayas on the borders of Pakistan and China, the world’s second tallest mountain has a tortuous history, which has resulted in less than 400 climbers reaching the top in the 64 years since its first ascent – compared to over 5,000 summits of Mt. Everest in the same period. Known as the ‘Mountaineers Mountain,’ K2 is the ultimate prize in mountaineering. Aside from so few people achieving the goal, its fatality rate – a sobering summit to death ratio of 25% - has left scores of climbers paying the ultimate price.

In his compelling presentation, Adrian will tell the story of the mountain and its huge dangers; his two profound attempts on it; and the powerful lessons he learned on the way.

Ticket price includes reception with beer/wine bar, hors d'oeuvres, lecture, and Q&A
