Adventure Lectures

Join us for something a bit different as Mendip hosts real life adventurers telling their stories.

Franco Cookson

7pm to 8.30pm, Thursday 1st February, 2024.

Join Montane sponsored climber, Franco, as he agonises in the quest for the perfect objective. Where is the boundary between the ideal hard route and the lunacy of the impossible? What does impossible even mean these days? And will any route ever be enough? Franco's doomed quest will take him from the farthest corners of the United Kingdom to the mythically remote Mirror Wall in East Greenland. Failure is guaranteed, but will there be any success?

Find out more about Franco here: his film Fall Theory, his sponsorship with Montane or his Youtube Channel.
