[Dear Alison - Helen Mort]

'Dear Alison' is a poem featured in the anthology No Map Could Show Them by acclaimed poet Helen Mort - a collection of poems centring on women making their mark and forging their own paths throughout history, both in the wilderness and in modern urban life. 'Dear Alison' is a personal tribute written by Helen to the late British mountaineer Alison Hargreaves - a mother, a wife and a talented climber who faced criticism due to her risk taking and her decision to continue climbing as a young mother, before her untimely death on K2 in 1995.

As part of our Digital Feature on Helen, this short video is a visual recreation of Helen's words with imagery and sounds which evoke the poet's emotional connection to Alison, featuring Helen climbing Namenlos HVS 5a at Stanage Plantation.
