I’m assuming this is Gwen Moffat? If so formidable indeed.

If you believe Wikipedia, indeed it is. Penblwydd hapus Gwen.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwen_Moffat

When it was my hundredth birthday I got a telegram off Her Majesty, apparently this no longer happens, in fact you're more likely to receive a text off Prince Andrew when you're 14

Maybe because she´s dead?

The link in the OP is mangled.  Maybe try this one:  https://www.mountain-heritage.org/blog/the-formidable-miss-moffat-a-rare-in...

I read Space Below My Feet what feels like a lifetime ago now and I remember it striking a chord so clearly at a time in my life when I probably needed that. I've been giving friends copies of the book ever since (whether they wanted it or not), as well as enjoying some of her lesser known ones (not sure why they're not in print). Icon indeed.

​Though I also notice that her description of how she enjoyed the outdoors at 90 is similar to mine at 35...
