Okay, fingers crossed this month's event is a little less controversial (I will point out, not one of the critics on here came along to ask any tough questions... I was rather disappointed!!!)


WHEN: Thursday, 19 December -- from 7.30pm
WHERE: 12 Hutchinson St, St Peters


Gemma Woldendorp and Natasha Sebire – Greenland climbing and paragliding

Gemma and Natasha have climbed together in some of the more remote mountain ranges around the world, often seeking new lines and untrodden summits. Their adventures range from the snow and ice of the Bolivian Andes, new rock routes in the Schweizerland Mountains in Greenland, and first ascents in the Miyar Valley in the Indian Himalaya (for which the pair received Australian Geographic's 'Spirit of Adventure Award'). They will be talking about their latest adventure that saw them venture into a rarely visited region in east Greenland where they made several first ascents of peaks in the area and then flew from the summits with paragliders. For more info, check out their website:

Allie Pepper – Australian mountaineer

Allie Pepper is a high-altitude mountaineer who has climbed numerous peaks in New Zealand, the Andes and Himalaya. In 2007 she stood on her first 8000mt peak, Cho Oyu in Tibet, and was the second Australian female to do so without the use of supplementary oxygen. More recently, in 2011, she achieved her dream of successfully climbing the world’s highest mountain, Mt Everest. After a period of living as a mountaineering guide in South America she now works as an outdoor leader, trainer and assessor in the Blue Mountains, where she grew up. She is passionate about adventure, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle and tonight will be giving a general talk on her adventures and motivations. For more info, check out her website:


Australian climbing icon Mike Law (a speaker at last month’s Adventure Time), will be making another appearance, and will be testing (breaking) climbing gear for your enjoyment.


We will be screening the Australian premier of kayaker Ben Stookesberry’s latest film: ‘Walled in’. This film follows Ben and Chris Korbulic as they attempt to run the Marble Fork of the Kaweah in Sequoia National Park. The mission involved an eight-day portage and vertical epic of establishing a sporty big-wall traverse, then a five-hour descent into a never-before-run, two-thousand-foot deep canyon with no potential for escape. What could possibly go wrong? 'Walled In' world premiered at the 2013 Banff Mountain Film Festival (USA), but hasn’t yet been screened internationally.


As usual, we will also have a slack line (provided by and, alcoholic beverages including beer, wine and cider (by donation). You may also BYO.
