Doug Robinson Slide Show
 
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.

Francis Sanzaro Book Reading/Discussion
 
Author of The Boulder: A Philosophy for Bouldering, Francis Sanzaro will read from his book and discuss why we find climbing so darn compelling. 
 
 
 
 
 
Saturday, November 1st. 8:00pm. Free Admission
 
Julian Lines Slide Show
 
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.

Silas will share stories about rock climbing, alpine climbing, and ski mountaineering on the Mont Blanc massif and around Chamonix with a detailed "beta session" on how to make the most out of your first (or second, or whatever) trip to Chamonix and the Alps productive, fun, and safe.
