Leo Houlding has climbed the most difficult and highest mountains in the world since scaling the Old Man of Hoy aged 10 – 21 years ago.

In search of ever greater adventure, last year took him to the wildest, least accessible and most contrasting corners of Earth – deep into the Amazon jungle and to the centre of the Antarctic wilderness.

He will talk about this last adventure and his most difficult challenge to date – climbing Ulvetanna,‘the wolf’s tooth’, in a rarely visited area of Antarctica.
