Event Details

Leo Houlding is one of the world’s best climbers; big walls, Everest, triple peaks in as many days, you name it, Leo’s probably climbed it! 

Honest, raw and exhilarating, Leo shares a 'warts-and-all' insight into the extreme life of one of Britain's best climbers who is active today and still planning epic adventures. He will reveal what drives him, how he assesses risk and judges how close to the edge he can go and return safely, and how he balances this with teaching his own children the lessons he has learnt in some of the world's most dangerous and extreme places. We're delighted to hear from Leo, who has been at the top of his game for over thirty years, with still more mountains to explore.

There will be a book signing straight after the event.

Closer to the Edge will be available to purchase at the Festival book store over the Festival weekend.
