Dan Richards talks to Andrew St George

Climbing Days

Venue: Oxfam Moot

Following in the footholds of his great-great-aunt, the early C20th pioneering mountaineer, Dorothy Pilley, Richards begins to travel and climb across Europe. Learning the ropes in Wales and Scotland, scrambling in the Lake District, scaling summits in Spain and Switzerland, he closes in on the serrate pinnacle of Dorothy’s climbing life, the mighty Dent Blanche in the high Alps of Valais. Richards is the co-author, with Stanley Donwood and Robert Macfarlane, of Holloway.
