Royal Instituition 21/11/2005

Off then to the Royal Institute to see a lecture with Matthew by Simon Yates the guy that cut the rope on Joe Simpson. It was an impressive lecture in the lecture hall that they used for the Royal Institution Xmas lectures. The slides the guy showed off his journeys allover the world were very impressive. Matthew had even been to the base of one of the mountain ranges he had climbed. He also told all about the "incident" from his point of view, and was quite amusing generally, especially when he went to work on a building site and was nicknamed slasher.
