Internationally acclaimed mountaineer Simon Yates is one of Britain’s most accomplished exploratory mountaineers, best known for his role in Joe Simpson’s book and film, ‘Touching the Void’ - the true story of Simpson's accident in the Peruvian Andes, and Yates's attempt to rescue him.
Simon’s climbing and travelling has taken him from Alaska to Australia, and from the Canadian Arctic to the tip of South America.
Simon has written 3 books - all shortlisted for mountain literature prizes. In his latest book, he relates his own experience of the commercialisation of mountain wilderness, while grappling with his new-found commitments as a family man.
