Topic - Ian Hill RIP

John Alcock - on 27 Dec 2012
I thought some of you might want to know that one-time Bristol bouldering guru Ian Hill died on Christmas Eve. Ian had a pancreatic transplant three months ago which he hoped would transform his life, but unfortunately he developed complications and had to be re-admitted to hospital. His condition deteriorated and he couldn't be saved.

Ian was a central figure on the Bristol bouldering scene for many years. He was hugely supportive and encouraging to me personally and many other climbers based at UCR. He frequently helped me believe I could do problems that I had thought were impossible. He played a key role in developing the local competition scene. Ian was also an award-winning photographer and and in later years an expert Lindy Hopper.
