Adventure Time - Lee Cossey 12/11/15 29-Oct-2015 At 11:13:03 AM bjorniam
We're excited announce the next two Adventure Time speakers: Lee Cossey and Andrew Dimitri. Lee's climbing achievements will be known while Andrew will be giving some insights into his work with Medicine Sans Frontiers.

As it's uni exam period we'll start a bit earlier - doors open' at 19:00 for a 19:30 start, and there won't be a bbq. (Dec AT will be much more chill!)
Address is 197 Wilson St, Newtown.

Hope to see some Chockstoners there!
Also feel free to share it around other climbing circles!


Lee Cossey is one of the most well known Australian climbers, both internationally and at home in Australia, and really needs no introduction - but here is a cool recent feature

While Lee is probably best known for developing a healthy share of Australia's hardest sports climbs, particularly in the Grampians (Sneaky Snake, Trouser Snake etc.) and on his home turf in the Bluies as a major contributor to Diamond Falls and in more recent years to Elphinstone (where the ‘warm-up project’ is said to weigh in at 30...) he has also chalked up some noteworthy assents overseas, including free ascents of three major El Cap routes (up to 5.13c). Remarkably these each done in a single push, ground up without the use of any fixed ropes, a style that was unheard of at the time and is still rarely undertaken.


Andrew Dimitri has been working for MSF since 2010. Tonight he will talk about his experiences working as a Medical Referent for Jasira Hospital in Mogasdishu, Somalia, in 2013 in the early stages of the rebuilding of the capital after the UN intervention.
