Cath and I went to see Simon Yates - Beyond the Void at Abergavenny’s Borough Theatre last week.
Simon is best known as the man who cut the rope when his mountaineering partner Joe Simpson fell into a crevasse. (A story summarised here and made into the film Touching the Void.)
His story was about this and the rest of a remarkable career climbing up most of the world’s most difficult mountains. An enjoyable couple of hours, but it made me thankful that I didn’t shin up ice-covered mountains to get my kicks.
