Leo Houlding Bristol tour date postponement
Berghaus has announced that Leo Houlding’s first show on the Berghaus Adventure Tour 2010 has been postponed. Houlding was due to speak at the Tobacco Factory in Bristol on Sunday 24 October. The show will now take place in the same venue on Sunday 14 November. All tickets bought for the original show are valid for the new date, but full refunds are available on request.
Leo Houlding comments:
“I am really, really sorry about this situation. To get straight to the point, I'm painfully close to making the first ascent of The Prophet, on El Capitan in Yosemite. This is my new route on the world’s great cliff and unquestionably the hardest I've ever tackled. Unfortunately, the conditions have not been too kind over here – it was very hot for the first week, followed by heavy rain for a week – but right now it's perfect. However, I need more time.
“I have never postponed a show like this before and I’m loathe to do it this time. I certainly wouldn’t do this if the route wasn't of the utmost importance to me. First and foremost, I am a climber and this route is a massive objective for me. Once again, sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused, but I have to stay and do this thing.”
Houlding’s sponsor Berghaus is in the process of contacting people who have already bought a ticket for the show. Tickets for the new date are now available and can be purchased at planetFear, by calling 01768 774493 or by visiting the new Berghaus store on Broadmead in Bristol.
