Back to all Back

An Evening with Andrew Lock

Andrew Lock OAM is Australia’s most accomplished high-altitude mountaineer. He is the only Australian and just the eighteenth person in the world to climb all fourteen of the world’s 8000 metre peaks. His achievements encompass 18 summits of those 8000 metre peaks including Mt Everest twice, three times that of any other Australian, placing him in a select group of the world’s best alpinists.

Andrew will be speaking on the challenges involved in transitioning from New Zealand to Himalayan and Karakorum mountaineering, and will be available after the presentation to answer questions. Copies of Andrew’s new book, ‘Summit 8000: Life and Death with Australia’s Greatest Mountaineer’ will also be available for purchase both prior to and after his presentation.
