Doug Scott - Crawling Down The Ogre

Doug Scott Mountaineer 700x500
Entry Fee

£15. Concessions £13.

The story of Doug Scott's escape is one of mountaineering's greatest epics.

The Ogre is the most difficult of the world’s high mountains to climb. In 1977 Doug Scott and Chris Bonington made the first ascent; their subsequent descent, in the dark, immediately became an epic.

Abseiling off the summit tower, Doug slipped on ice and swung into the cliff he had just climbed, breaking both legs just - shortly after, a storm blew in! Their escape is one of mountaineering’s greatest epics.
