My understanding is that Henry will be doing a talk in Brisbane. I have no details, but check out your local climbing clubs.

These are some possible dates Henry has suggested:

I am arriving into Sydney on November 3.
Lecture Canberra November 7.
Lecture Melbourne November 8.
Lecture Adelaide November 14.
Lecture Sydney November 15.
Lecture Brisbane November 21.
Fly back to the states on November 22.

As far as I know, only the Melbourne (VCC) lecture is confirmed at this stage.

Recently read an interview with Barber regarding this. It was in a climbing compendium . Mirrors in the Glass, or something like that. The one that came out after 'Games Climbers Play'.

It was basically Barber defending his actions regarding the incident. Seems like Taylor broke his leg on the descent and Barber hoofed it down without assisting with the rescue.

From Henry

Here is my schedule:
November 3 arrive.
November 7 Canberra I will be speaking at a hall in the National University
November 8 Melbourne VCC your event
November 14 Adelaide Paddy Pallin organizer
November 20 Brisbane at the university
November 21 Sydney at the bowler’s club

At this time it seems there may be some confusion on whether Sydney will be on the 15th or 21st. I am waiting to hear back from two people.

Brisbane Rock Climbing Club and the Sydney Rock Climbing Club are organising their respect events.

Don't know who is looking after Canberra.

Maybe someone from the organising groups can post booking details etc.

For those that are internet newbies (me) what is the full web address for the podcast with Henry Barber. Sounds like a must but Im not quite sure if 8 minutes is what you would call a very informative interview.
Thanks

Click on download it - you may need to save it to your PC and then you can play it using Windows Media Player, or it may just download and play automatically - depends on your PC setup.

Worth listening to IMO

Henry Barber in Sydney

Who: US climbing legend “Hot” Henry Barber.

When: Thursday, November 15 at 7.30pm.

Venue: The Red Room, Level 1, the Bowlers Club, 99 York St, Sydney NSW.

Tickets: $15 from the Sydney Rockclimbing Club Inc.

Email: info@sydneyrockies.org.au

In 1975 a one-man tornado hit the Australian climbing scene: Henry Barber.

By the time “Hot” Henry had left Australia six weeks later, he had climbed 29 cliffs in six different states and the Australian free climbing grade had been lifted to 23.

His ticks included the first free ascents of C--k Corner, 21, at Frog Buttress, and the Arapiles classics Kachoong, 21, Kama Sutra, 23, including his virtual solo of Thunder Crack, 20.

His first ascents included Insomia, 22, at Frog Buttress, Reaper, 22 at Mt Arapiles and Daedalus, 20, on Hobart’s the Organ Pipes.

More than 30 years later and Henry is still living the climbing life.

On November 15 in Sydney Henry will not only talk about how he changed the Australian climbing scene in the ‘70s but how Australia changed his life in climbing.

He will also talk about his recent exploits in Meteora Greece, and Brazil as well as the defining areas of his climbing travels in East Germany, England “and a few other countries that made a difference”.

That's quite incorrect - please be careful when posting comments about these sort of events that what you assert as facts are correct. The post above is potentially libellous.

From my memory - Taylor broke his leg in a fall from the icicle on the final headwall of the Breach wall of Kilimajaro while attempting the first ascent with Barber. I believe it was a compound fracture. Barber heped Taylor down the face which was prone to stonefall and avalanche danger to a point where Taylor could be left safely. Barber then went out to raise the alarm but did not return with the rescue team. Taylor never forgave Barber for not returning but the fact remains that Barber got Taylor down a huge, extremely dangerous face at considerable personal risk.

I've just read Henry Barber's bio, in which there is a chapter on the incident. Kieran's summary is basically
right.
