In 2012, Sandy Allan and a team of mountaineers made an epic journey to the limits of survival. In an incredible feat of endurance, Sandy and his climbing partner Rick Allen reached the summit of Nanga Parbat – one of the world’s deadliest mountains. Widely regarded as the ‘last great climb’ in the Himalaya, the team’s first ascent of the 8,000-metre Mazeno Ridge took eighteen days, three of which were endured without food and water. In 2013, the ascent was awarded the highly coveted Piolet d’Or mountaineering award.
Sandy will reveal the story behind his journey and read from his autobiographical account, In Some Lost Place, which has been shortlisted for this year’s Boardman Tasker Prize – an award widely regarded as the most prestigious international prize for mountain literature.
