The SES is delighted to announce that Vanessa O'Brienwill be the SES@GauchoCityspeaker in October 2018 and will give a talk about K2 - The Final Conqueston Tuesday 30 October 2018at the Gaucho (City), London. These events are kindly hosted by Gaucho City and supported by Cadogan Tate, for which the SES is extremely grateful.

On 28 July 2017, SES Member and dual national Vanessa O’Brien became the first American or British woman to successfully conquer K2 after a gruelling 16 hour summit push where she encountered deep snow, howling winds, increasing precipitation and extremely cold temperatures. This was Vanessa's third consecutive year attempting K2, and her team’s dedication and persistence paid off as they became the only team to summit in 2017, following two years of no summits on K2. On 30 October 2018, Vanessa will take us through what she discovered about climbing K2 and the people of Pakistan, the research that showed glacier contamination, and the historical conservation she led at the Gilkey-Puchoz Memorial.
