Gordon Stainforth and (the) Peter Harding climbing at Laddow, August 1994
© John Beatty, Aug 1994
Camera used: Canon (I think)
While doing my Peak book I was privileged to do several climbs with Peter Harding, who in the late '40s was one of the great pioneer rock climbers (such classics as Promontory Traverse, Suicide Wall, Cratcliffe, Valkyrie at the Roaches and Spectre in the Pass.)

Browsing to find a climbing photo of my dad to email to my youngest sister in Dubai and came across this shot of him climbing with Gordon Stainforth. Have just spent the weekend with him and Mum and sad to say he isn't very well these days. Nice to see this shot of him in happier days.

I'm sorry to hear that Peter is not so well (Steve Dean told me that, too, recently). Please pass on my best regards. Actually, I have a much better picture of him - from my book The Peak - that I'll try to put up in the next few days. It'll go well with the Arthur Birtwistle one.
