Hanging On

A Life Inside British Climbing's Golden Age

Price £20.00
Members £18.00

The start of a love affair. ‘I kicked off my shoes and prepared to climb in stocking feet, aware of an enormous sense of occasion as I laid hands on the rock and stepped up on the first rounded hold. It was not a hard climb but that was unimportant.

I felt instinctively at home and at the finish experienced such a surge of happy elation that I knew then I was committed to climbing.’ Martin Boysen’s passion for crags and mountains springs from his deep love of nature and a strong sense of adventure. From his early days on rock as a Kent schoolboy after the war, he was soon among the most gifted climbers of his or any generation, famed for his silky technique. Boysen made a huge contribution to British rock climbing, especially in North Wales; he discovered Gogarth in the 1960s and climbed some of the best new routes of his era: Nexus on Dinas Mot, The Skull on Cyrn Las and the magisterial Capital Punishment on Ogwen’s Suicide Wall - See more at: http://www.v-publishing.co.uk/books/categories/biographies/hanging-on.html#sthash.DMJGUIZw.dpuf
