Wild Wanderings: Phil Gribbon in conversation

  • Waterstones Oban 12 George Street Oban PA34 5SB (map)

Mountaineering veteran Phil Gribbon will be in conversation with David Meldrum about his new book Wild Wanderings: A Life Amongst Mountains, which details his incredible climbing career that includes over 70 years’ experience of mountaineering and over 100 first ascents of Arctic alpine peaks. From Greenland to Ireland, local Scottish hills to West Canada, USA, China and the Himalayas, Gribbon’s accounts of his many expeditions are personal, reflective and light-hearted, often downplaying the dangerous dramatics of mountaineering with humour.
