Also going on at the KMF was the Boardman-Tasker. Canadian writer, Bernadette McDonald scooped the 2011 Boardman-Tasker award for mountain literature with her book Freedom Climbers, which also took the Grand Prize at the recent Banff Mountain Book Festival.
The book is a moving account of the adventures of Polish climbers and their epic battle for Himalayan peaks in the 1980s.
There was also a Kendal Mountain Festival Photography Award judged by Henry Iddon with prizes from fstopgear.com. This was won by Tom Last with his photo 'Duck and Cover' of winter conditions on the Ballachulish Horseshoe. You can see all the final entries here.
UKC will be publishing a full report of the festival later this week.
