~ A fascinating evening with Dave Turnbull, BMC Chief Exec.
Dave took up climbing in 1985 and has been BMC CEO since 2002. He has climbed in 20 or so countries and is perhaps best known for his exploratory new routes in Scotland and South West England. In 1997 he made a free ascent of the Longhope Route, Orkney with John Arran and in 2011 he climbed a 7 day route on Gojung (6300m) in Nepal with Mick Fowler. His recent trip to the Fitzroy / Cerro Torre massif with Stuart McAleese and Dan Donovan in January this year, coincided with one of the best spells of good weather Patagonia has seen in a decade – and he has the photos to prove it.
