A chance to hear Kenton Cool and Ian Parnell recount their breath-taking (literally) experiences, from taking a vertigo sufferer, with only five fingers and a heart condition, up the treacherous North Face of the Eiger, to climbing Everest more times than any other Briton.
In 2007, Kenton Cool and Ian Parnell's dramatic live-footage of guiding the explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, up the notorious North Face of the Eiger was featured on ITV news
. In the process they hoped to raise £1.5m for Marie Curie Cancer
Kenton is one of the best high-altitude mountain guides in the world, personally reaching Everest's summit six times (two of these being back to back in the same week). In 2003 he was nominated for the prestigious Piolet D'Or (international mountaineering award) for a first ascent of Annapurna lll and in 2006 he became the first Briton to ski down an 8000m peak on Cho Oyu.
Ian Parnell, nominated for the Piolet D'Or four times, is no stranger to pushing mental and physical endurance to the limit, with difficult first ascents of peaks around the world. A renowned mountain photographer and film maker, Vertigo will be full of stunning mountain imagery.
