Ilkley Adventure Festival - Gritstone to Granite with John Proctor


Stories of climbing adventures, locally and around the world

Join us at Alpkit Ilkley on October 21st for an evening of tall tales of adventure from local climber John Proctor. He will take us on a journey from local gritstone to big wall alpine.

He'll tell us of the early days of his climbing career, growing up in Yorkshire, surrounded by some of the best outcrops & quarries of Gritstone. Over the years, the experiences, skills, techniques and friendships he developed lead him on exciting climbing adventures across the world.

John is also an author of two books, most recently 'Mapping the Mind'. Mapping the Mind is a series of descriptive sky runs; it aims to guide you and develop your skills and knowledge as your heart, legs and lungs grow stronger, and you run and climb your way through mainland Britain's wildest and highest mountain peaks.

The talk will start at 7pm on October 21st and last approx. 2 hours.
Refreshments will be provided on the night.

Tickets are available through eventbrite below.
