UMCA Lecture

This lecture has been prepared to widely communicate the mountaineering spirit of Venables, who has dedicated his life to expanding the frontiers of exploration. The lecture features the first mountain he climbed, the Kangshung Face of Everest where he pioneered a new route without use of supplemental oxygen in 1988, along with a collection of his writings that promote mountain culture. 

Through the insights of this true adventurist, we hope to gain a fresh perspective on the mountains ravaged by the environmental crises, to climb them once again.​

Stephen Venables
Stephen Venables (1954-) is one of the mountaineers who has adhered to the 'Alpine style' of climbing. He started professional climbing at the age of 17 and cultivated a passion for the Himalayan mountains. In 1988, he participated in an expedition to the Kangshung Face of Mt. Everest, becoming the first British person to successfully summit without supplementary oxygen. Since then, he has continued to explore and climb uncharted mountains.

Venables also made a name for himself as an 'Ambassador for Alpinism.' His 11 mountaineering books have shared the diverse world of climbing with numerous readers, and three of his books have been presented with globally prestigious awards: the “Boardman Tasker Prize”, the “Grand Prize at the Banff Mountain Book Festival”, and the “Best Book - Mountain Literature at the Banff Mountain Book Festival”. Venables has thus promoted proper climbing ethics, and has been selected for the Mountain Culture Award at the 2023 Ulsan Ulju Mountain Film Festival, which boasts the slogan, "Come up higher, Cinemountain."​
