Lynam Lecture 2013 - Dawson Stelfox – ‘High Points’

Trinity College, Dublin November 29th 2012

For those of you who didn’t make the Lynam Lecture on November 29th, you missed a very good evening! The 2012 lecture was given by Dawson Stelfox and was entitled ‘High Points’. Dawson gave a fascinating insight into his early expeditions to Iran, India and Pakistan which paved the way for the 1993 summit of the North Ridge of Mount Everest. Joined by members of the 1993 expedition team, Dawson recognised those who had supported their ventures over the years. However, the story didn’t stop there; as Dawson went on to talk about his more recent adventures in bringing several youth expeditions to places such as the Lofoten Islands in Norway. Dawson continues Joss Lynam’s legacy in championing and encouraging the next generation of Irish mountaineers and introducing young climbers to the risks and rewards of the high mountains. With nearly 400 visitors on the night, proceeds from tickets will be split between two projects which are very close to Dawson’s heart – The Irish Nepalese Educational Trust and Irish Himalayan Trust
