Why do people climb mountains? Because it gets us high! Doug’s long-awaited book, The Alchemy of Action, offers a fresh—even shocking—explanation of why people climb mountains, by delving into the brain chemistry behind climber’s euphoria. The intriguing story behind why we are so much more than “adrenaline junkies” leads deep into the psyches of all adventure athletes as they push toward the ragged edge of human potential and return with shimmering new awareness from a heady brew of hormonal cocktail that includes the surprising ingredients of home-made organic psychedelic compounds.
Saturday, October 25th. 8:00pm. Free Admission
Author of The Boulder: A Philosophy for Bouldering, Francis Sanzaro will read from his book and discuss why we find climbing so darn compelling.

Jules Lines is Britain's most accomplished free solo climber. His quiet demeanour and natural technique have earned him the unofficial title of 'The Dark Horse' in Scottish climbing circles. In this, his first book, he recounts adventures and misadventures worldwide, from early achievements - completing all 277 Munros (1987) whilst still at school - to the continuing challenges of the present day. Spanning more than three decades of extreme climbing, his reflections reveal the drive and determination required for a human being to repeatedly gamble with his own existence, and for it to become not only a way of life, but his entire raison d'etre.
Saturday, November 8th. 8:00pm. Free Admission.
