Central arts Waterford on Thursday December 10th at 8pm Mountaineer and expedition leader Michael Whelan will deliver a talk entitled Climbing Mt Blanc. The talk will also feature images and short video clips.
Over the past 12 years Michael has attempted Mt Blanc several times, both expedition style (self supporting, food, tent and so on) and Alpine style ( using the refuge huts) summiting 4 times. Most memorably in 2008 when he along with 3 lads from Waterford, sat out a storm for 3 days in a small tent at 3800m before reaching the summit.
