Proper climber! This ME series is an excellent set of interviews.
Does anyone know what the mountain is in the still shot at 8:27? Stunning photo....
Great conversation - saw him many years ago in late 80's and he'd always apologise about the posters being the same - Western Cym
Utterly brilliant. Virtually in a class of his own for breadth of experience combined with modesty.
I'm with you Gordon, could listen to the man for hours.
absolute fvcking hero.
also saw him in the late 80s when he still had the long hair and beard, and tho i already new i was going to be a climber, seeing him made me think why.
agreed, its the mans breadth of experience that is unequalled. baffin in the 70s says it all.
some great photos too.
can anyone name all those guys in the pic in wales (or wherever) from the 60s. id love to know who they are.

They were a slightly older generation than me but I recognise four or five of the faces. Think its Dan Meadows fourth in from R end of the line up.
