the wonder of wales

For staunch lovers of the Lake District, sometimes it’s hard to truly explain the appeal of hillwalking in Wales. Too wet, too grey, not enough nice pubs... these are just a clutch of common grumbles. Everyone knows it’s rough and ridgey, dramatic and slightly dangerous, but otherwise they’re blissfully ignorant to everything that makes it such a special place to explore on foot. What they really need to know is that – unless you want to head into deepest, darkest Scotland – this is probably the adventure capital of Britain. Jagged mountains with knife-edge arétes, green valleys with thundering waterfalls, sparkling llyns, thick forests, silent summits, and terrain that feels like it was geographically sculpted with walking boots in mind. You won’t find many chocolate-box villages, or gingerbread shops, or Beatrix…

pike of stickle

Sticking its head above the skyline on the left of this photo is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Lakeland. If you’ve ever driven into the National Park from the south, up Lake Windermere towards Ambleside on the A591, you’ll have seen it. Brooding in the distance, all dark, shadowy and angular. More commonly referred to as one of the Langdale Pikes – the popular and shapely collection of peaks it sits within – the Pike of Stickle’s rocky summit cone grows ever more impressive the closer you get. But to fully appreciate the sheerness of its crags and punchiness of its summit, you need to get high. And the best way to do that is by clambering over its near neighbours Crinkle Crags and Pike of Blisco, which…

from west face to west end

Transcending the world of climbing like no other mountain survival story, Joe Simpson’s account of his near-death experience on Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes sold well-over a million copies, has been translated into 20 languages, was converted into a BAFTA award-winning film – and now 34 years on is going to the West End. Received with five-star reviews, the play adaptation has astounded critics who were left “gripped” and “breathless” by this new perspective on Joe’s agonising escape from the clutches of the mountains after his climbing partner had to cut the rope connecting them and leave him for dead. Somehow bringing the icy landscape to life with tricks of perspective and lighting with dizzying realism, and with scenes from Joe’s imaginary wake at the Clachaig Inn in Glencoe, the…

joe simpson talks to trail

• ACCIDENTAL AUTHOR “I never meant to be a writer. I wrote Touching the Void because everyone was blaming Simon for cutting the rope. I thought I was writing a climbing book, but then it won two awards. At the time I was still recovering from my injuries – and just wanted get climbing again. But then came the film, and now a bloody play! It’s very odd.” • SURREAL EXPERIENCE “I didn’t really enjoy watching the play. It’s getting five-star reviews but it’s odd for me, like looking through several mirrors. As I can’t get my own experience of the story out of my head, it’s strange seeing others getting so involved.” • RELIVING THE FALL “Doctors say that after a traumatic event, telling the story again and again until it becomes a fiction…
