I am not a mountain climber, more a beach walker, but I do like to read books of achievement and the great outdoors.
Gwen Moffat is an exceptional woman, ahead of her time and an inspiration to both sexes, and this is a must read book.
I didn't understand all the technicalities of climbing, so what? This is a wonderful life in a book and lived to the full......so read it!

Really interesting book not only for the climbing but as a depiction of a time (post war Britain). The author led a life so entirely different from most women of the time that she must have encountered many difficult reactions and attitude. Her dynamism is extraordinary.

This book was recommended to me and I am really enjoying it. It is very easy reading. For those nostalgic about the Uk's rural past and very interesting descriptions of early youth hostels. Also interesting to read the writer's view if the world.

Many years ago I borrowed this book from the library and loved it. Ever since I have wanted a copy for myself and now, with 2nd-hand books being advertised through Amazon, I have found one! It is Gwen Moffat's autobiographical account of how she discovered rock climbing, her adventures in the mountains, both in the UK and abroad, and life as a mountain guide; but it contains more than just climbing, describing her love life, her family, her two marriages, her triumphs and disappointments, her struggles to earn a living, but above all her love of the Welsh mountains.

Format: Paperback
Gwen Moffat was Britain's first female mountain guide. Moreover, in the austere world of post-war Britain where women were expected to stay home and get married, Gwen's Bohemian attitude was very much against the norm - in fact she was 20 years ahead of her time.

Her autobiography "Space Below My Feet" was out of print for many years and it was long over-due being republished.
Like so many people later, Gwen just lived for climbing. The book is fascinating, not only for the tales of climbing and mountains, but also just how different her lifestyle was for the times. Dossing in climbing barns and sleeping under hedges was not lady-like behavour in 1947!
Highly recommended.

I read this book shortly after it came out. I thoroughly enjoyed it then and having just finished it 2 days ago thorouhly enjoyed it again. Gwen Moffat lets one know what is passing through her mind, which makes it easier to understand the climbs she has done. An excellent book and very well written.
