Further details

Arguably Australia’s best mountaineer, Andrew Lock has written a new book titled Summit 8000, which he is currently touring. As the first and only Australian to summit all 14 of the world’s 8000 meter peaks, the book focuses on the intense human drama of his expeditions.

We’re told Andrew’s presentations have been known to sell out. This is not just a book tour, as there will also be details of two forth coming trips Andrew will be guiding in 2015 for World Expeditions.

If you’re curious to discover what motivates a man to put himself through life and death experiences and not just once, grab yourself ticket.
