Chic Scott: Fantasy and Reality, Filming the Eiger Sanction!

Chic Scott really needs no introduction, being an honorary member of many a mountain club, a multi-award winner for his writing. Over 50 years of adventure he has climbed and skied around the world, organized clubs and foundations,written books and worked as a mountain guide! This evening’s presentation will focus on his experience working with the crew on the filming of  “The Eiger Sanction”. 

By Source, Fair use,




During the summer of 1974 Chic spent 7 weeks working with Clint Eastwood, Dougal Haston and Hamish McInnes filming The Eiger Sanction. In this presentation Chic takes a look behind the scenes at the personalities, the stunts, the adventure and the tragedy. Then we watch some of the footage with a running commentary on the actors and the action. Come along, February 21st, it should be a fascinating evening!
