ABOUT RON FAWCETT As one of a number of leading climbers in the 1970s, Ron was in no small part responsible for rock climbing's evolution from amateur pursuit, to professional endeavour. His drive, and physical and mental ability, gave him an edge with which to forge new ground. Climbs such as Lord of the Flies and Strawberries were at the forefront of world climbing at the time, and are still considered formidable challenges to this day.
In March this year he launched his successful biography Rock Athlete, another great read from the Vertebrate Publishing stable. Bring your copy down to one of the lectures for a signing and if you haven't already got yours, what are you waiting for?
