MCI Winter Lectures :: Tim Orr

Catherine and I went along to the first of MCI’s Winter Lectures series last night to see Robbie Fenlon talk about trekking in the Himalayas, but instead we had Tim Orr step in and give a talk that ran the whole gamut of mountaineering.

As two people just getting into mountaineering, Tim’s talk was really interesting. He covered everything from walking in Kerry, to mountain skills courses, to climbing in Dalkey quarry, to trekking in the Himalayas, to winter mountaineering in Scotland, to climbing the Eiger and Mont Blanc, to scrambling, bouldering, rock climbing and more.

The videos Tim had put together on his climb of Mont Blanc with some friends was especially helpful in my quest to convince Catherine that we should book a Mont Blanc ascent for this summer 🙂
