Nick Bullock Multi-Media Presentation.
It Takes a Big Dog
• Canadian Alpinism
Including the second ascent of the 1,000m House - Anderson on Mount Alberta
• The Rive Guache Affair
Nick Bullock meets his smooth French counterpart Jeff Mercier at the Rive Gauche, a
steep mixed climbing crag in France.
• Scottish Winter Climbing - where it all began
‘Nick Bullock is undeniably one of the UK's leading Alpinists. His CV of expeditions spans
both continents and decades and his bold first ascents across the globe reek of
commitment and drive. Bullock is not a young man, and at the tender age of 49 he still
lives the dirtbag lifestyle, travelling, climbing, living out of a van and burning through
climbing partners as his appetite for adventure, be that on ice or rock, is never satisfied.
Not one for the modern upside-down world of 'sport dry tooling', Bullock keeps fit on the
hill, swinging his axes in to steep traditional terrain in the Alps or Scotland, interspersed
with summers of climbing unprotected rubble on the sea cliffs of North Wales. He's a
traditionalist. He's opinionated. He lives on a shoe string, and he climbs mountains that
would make most of us quake with fear.’
