About Simon Yates
On the remote Siula Grande in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates found himself in a desperately unenviable position. He was slowly being pulled off the mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope 50m below. His decision to cut the rope saved both their lives in the epic of survival that followed. With the publication of the book ‘Touching the Void’ and the later film, both men became household names.

It was an experience that could put many off the sport of mountaineering – but not Simon. Over 30 years later he is still an active exploratory climber and guide making several expeditions to the mountains each year. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, Alaska to Central Asia there is hardly a significant range he has not visited.

About IRIS
The activities of IRIS aim to help Improve Rural Isolated Schools in the Bolivian countryside. The charity can operate due to funding coming from the World Expeditions partner in Bolivia and donations from travellers as well as other third parties.
Schools that are in a critical status to get to education information, are selected in order to build a fully equipped library, to allow the children an access to information. Projects involve the creation of a physical building that is supplied with furniture, solar energy, computers and books.
