The old gamekeepers cottage on the Staffordshire Roaches known as Rock Hall used to be home to Doug Moller: a local character who became familiar to many climbers during the 1980's.
Rock Hall was acquired by The British Mountaineering Council and was refurbished and renamed The Don Whillans Memorial Hut in memory of the famous mountaineer who climbed on the Roaches.
It would make a perfect gift for anyone who has stayed in the hut. This lithographic print on high quality 300gsm paper measuring overall 32cm x 22.5cm. It has been signed and numbered by the artist in graphite pencil.
The print is a reproduction taken from the original pen and ink drawing completed by Phil in 1988. Supplied flat in a stiffened envelope.

Phil's obsession with climbing began in 1973 on Staffordshire Gritstone - and has shown no signs of relenting. A native of Stoke, Staffordshire shaped not only Phil’s climbing but his artistic direction: trained as a ceramic designer, he worked for Wedgwood and Moorcroft before freelancing as the pottery industry declined. It was in 1979 that he provided a collection of drawings for the BMC Staffordshire gritstone guidebook, and it was from here that he found a real niche in illustrating crag architecture. He now has completed nearly 300 drawings for guidebooks, but now drawing and painting have become a full time occupation as the work becomes destined for the wall rather than the bookshelf. http://www.philipgibson.co.uk/
