Award-winning Alpinist, Mountaineer, Climber and Author |
We are delighted to announce that one of the most renowned and successful mountaineers on the planet – Mick Fowler will headline Killarney Mountain Festival 2019 Adventure speaker programme!!!
Mick Fowler is a true living legend in the high risk game of pioneering new difficult routes on some of the worlds most remote and highest mountains. He has a multitude of hugely impressive 1st ascents to his credit in Scotland and the many greater ranges of the world. He is an award-winning British mountaineer and author and was voted the “Mountaineers’ Mountaineer” in a poll in The Observer and won the 2002 Piolet d’Or and Golden Piton awards for his ascent of 6,250-metre Mount Siguniang in the Sichuan Province of China. In 2012, he was awarded the King Albert award for his “outstanding contribution to mountaineering”, and in 2013, he and Paul Ramsden became the first pair to win a Piolet d’Or award twice after their ascent of the 6,142-metre Prow of Shiva in the Indian Himalayas. Paul Ramdsen and Mick Fowler received the Piolet d’Or for a third time in 2016 for their ascent of Gave Ding, 6,571-meter (Nepal).
