Dan Richards – Climbing Days

Dan Richards – Climbing Days

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. What emerges is a beautiful portrait of a trailblazing woman, up to now lost to history – but also a book about that eternal question: why do people climb mountains?


Richards is the co-author, with Stanley Donwood and Robert Macfarlane, of Holloway.
