HANDS OF A CLIMBER: A LIFE OF COLIN KIRKUS. 1993 1st UK ed DJ New
By Dean, Steve
Price: $19.99


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
UK, 1993, 1st edition. 278 pp, photos, index, photographic endpapers. Kirkus was one of Britain's best, and best liked, prewar rock climbers, who established many classic and hard routes in Snowdonia. Original red cloth hardcover, dust jacket, New.

Also includes two handwritten letters concerning the book, to 'Greg from John' (perhaps Greg Child.)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Colin Kirkus (19 June 1910-13 September 1942), was one of the most influential climbers Britain has ever produced.

Jack Longland described the greatest rock face in Wales, Clogwyn Du'r Arddu, as 'Colin’s Cliff'. Kirkus' series of new routes on 'Cloggy' was unparalleled until the emergence of Joe Brown, 20 years later.

Kirkus also climbed extensively in the Alps and made a pioneering Alpine-style ascent in the Himalaya in 1933. He was killed in the Second World War in 1942.

Kirkus left the world of mountaineering two tremendous legacies: firstly his pioneering climbs in Wales and elsewhere, and secondly one of the finest instruction books ever written: Let's Go Climbing!.
