London, 1955, 1st paperback ed. 252 pp. Used paperback, edge wear and pages yellowed. Good to Very Good reading copy. Neate X-93.

Neate called this the ''Still a leading as the finest climbing novel ever written.'' 
 
Uncommon second novel by Coxhead (1909-1965 or 1979[?]), drawing upon her personal experiences as a rock climber. One analysis of the book's plot states that 'it uses climbing as a means of analyzing. . . the social forces at work after World War II' - a young woman of slum origins breaks into the 'higher class' pursuit of climbing. 

Cathy Canning, an 18-year-old from the Birkenhead docks, meets a group of rock climbers at a youth hostel in the North Wales mountains. She becomes fascinated with the sport and becomes the star woman rock climber in the region. She also grows into a strong, selfless woman.
