Cotswold Outdoor in Tunbridge Wells will be hosting an evening with one of the greatest high altitude climbers of all time, Sherpa Adventure Gear Brand Ambassador, Kenton Cool.
World renowned for not only his expeditions but being the first person in history to make a "3G" phone call and send a tweet from the summit of Mount Everest, the record breaking Kenton Cool will be visiting Cotswold Outdoor in Tunbridge Wells on Wednesday 21 November to discuss the breath-taking life of a high altitude leader.
An elite IFMGA guide, Kenton is an inspiration to climbers and mountaineers everywhere, scaling 29,029ft above sea level to the summit of Everest a record ten times, twice of which were back to back in the same week - a global first.
Respected by likeminded mountaineers, Kenton has also guided the likes of Sir Ranulph Fiennes up this great feat.
The lecture at the store on Mount Pleasant Road will begin at 7pm and will explore Kenton's pursuits, revealing how he achieved his 10th summit up the highest mountain in the world.
There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask Kenton any questions they have about his experiences and their own.
Time: 7:00 PM till 10:00 PM
Price: £ 8.00 per person
