Guest speaker: Matthew Clark, Trekking and Alpine climbing in the Andes

Matt has recently returned from a 2 month trip, spent hiking and climbing in the Peruvian Andes. During the trip, he spent a number of weeks hiking in both the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash mountain ranges to acclimatise, before setting out to climb a number of intermediate to advanced mountains in the Cordillera Blanca.

Trip highlights include climbing 8 major routes up to D+ in difficulty, summiting four 6,000m peaks and a solo ascent of the North face of Ranrapalca, 6,162m, D+.

Come along and hear Matt talk about the trip, and why he thinks the Andes are the best mountaineering playground in the world!
