Sandy AllanThe FMCBC is proud to host a presentation by prolific Scottish mountaineer and author Sandy Allan next week in Vancouver.

In 2014, Sandy and his team set out to climb what was then regarded as “the last great climb” of the Himalaya—the giant Mazeno Ridge on Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth highest mountain. The ascent took 18 days, the last four of which were endured without food or water.

We hope you’ll join us to listen to Sandy describe his epic journey to the top and find out what’s next on his list.
