For those who knew, or appreciated the work of Alan Blackshaw, there is set to be an evening to celebrate his life & achievements.

Nick Colton of the BMC described Alan:

"Alan was President of the BMC (1973 - 1976), a BMC Patron (since 1978), and a specialist advisor to the BMC Access, Conservation and Environment Group.

He was perhaps best known for the book Mountaineering – from Hillwalking to Alpine Climbing (1966) published by Penguin books that many people simply called Blackshaw's Mountaineering.  It was the seminal text of its day that was regarded by many as the Bible of climbing and mountaineering."

WHERE: Royal Marines Reserves 351 Merton Road, Southfields, London SW18 5JX
