Helen Mort, 3 kbNo Map Could Show Them. The pioneering Victorian women in mountaineering of the early twentieth Century. The women whose narratives and achievements became lost in the mountains, where they forged paths and ascended; their stories brought back down to earth, only to be silenced by the patriarchy.

Rediscovering and amplifying the voices of these female mountaineers today is acclaimed poet and keen climber Helen Mort, in her latest poetry anthology No Map Could Show Them. Natalie Berry interviews Helen on combining the introspective world of writing with the creative escape of the great outdoors, alongside poem readings and our UKC filmpoem 'Dear Alison.'

Great stuff, though I take issue with the "I'm a bad climber" comment, I have evidence to the contrary ( apologies for the shameless plug ).

Namenlos (HVS 5a) is no pushover, either.

Fantastic! I've enjoyed hearing Helen Mort reading before, but didn't know she was a climber! Even better. And the poem 'Lady's Day Out' is fantastic.

What an outstanding feature - the final short film is really moving. "Stanage is a postcard to your loss, stamped with a daytime moon".

Her book "No map can show them" is excellent too (as is Division Street).
