5.0 out of 5 stars Discovering The Black Cliff 23 Feb. 2000
By Ken Hull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book deals with The Black Cliff, the name given by climbers to the rock face found a little way away from the railway line running up to the top of Snowden in North Wales.
From memory, for it is many years since I have read this book, many of the climbs were explored over a great many months and years. In many instances seconds were unable to follow leaders, hence ropes were discarded and the intrepid explorers continued these climbs without the safety they provided. Solo climbing was not in fashion and many of the routes were, for the era, of an extreme nature so that the decision to climb on alone in unchartered territory was a serios decision. Remember also that in this era many of the safety and mechanical devices in use today were not invented. I myself climbed in this area and Llanberis pass when it was radical to tie a knot in your rope or sling and use it as a chockstone. Many of the spectacular routes which were absolute classics were often very vegetated and the true worth of the climb was masked until "gardening" was completed. Much is said of the 'Masters Wall' and the respect afforded to Joe Brown as he worked out the route over many weekends, gradually overcoming difficulties. Spectacular photographs and written in such a way as to convey very meaningfully the majesty of the cliff itself, the area as a whole and the pioneering nature of the bold venturers who dared challenge The Black Cliff. Well worth a read!
