Description

'Joe's love of the fun and adventure of climbing is as fresh as ever in this fascinating interview. His description of the techniques of placing chockstones for critical runner protection and the film of sliding down the mountain railway track are valuable additions to the history of climbing technologies.' – Ken Wilson.

A rare interview with the greatest rock climber of all time, Joe Brown – 'The Human Fly'. A relaxed Joe tells George Smith the story of his sixty-year love affair with Welsh rock, from his first ascents on Cloggy in the fifties – putting up routes that redefined the sport of rock climbing in Britain – to his more recent Welsh explorations at Tremadog, Gogarth and the Dinorwic quarries. Using first ascent photos that have never been published before, Joe chats candidly with George about his motivation and his spirit of adventure.
