Jim Perrin explores the life of a tragic hero from the early days of British Climbing. Menlove was an inspired climber, and Perrin lovingly explores his life from birth to tragically early death. The writing style is highly literary, with frequent analysis of Menlove's writings used to illustrate his intellectual development and eventual self defeat. Fascinating and touching.

An excellent biography about a complex and troubled person. This is a great read whatever your interests, but the rock climber will find it easpecially so - it's easy to forget how prolific a climber JM Edwards was.
A masterly piece of writing by Jim Perrin, but would you expect anything other than that?

Verified Purchase
One of the early protagonists in the development of rock climbing in Britain. Perrin tells the story of a troubled soul, who suffered mental health problems for much of his life, culminating in his suicide. Menlove Edwards certainly made his name rock climbing and he climbed with some of the greats of his period including Colin Kirkus, but unlike other great climbers he never progressed to alpinism. This book has brought one of our pioneers out of obscurity.
