Come and celebrate the life and achievements of one of the modern climbing scene's biggest characters at Sheffield Hallam University on Saturday 30 July.

Ken Wilson revolutionised magazine and book publishing. As creator and editor of the ground-breaking Mountain magazine, he helped form the ethics of traditional British climbing. As author of several great climbing books, he was responsible for inspiring many young climbers to dream big and tick-off all the classics. And as a supporter of the BMC and the Climbers’ Club, he made sure the community was working to safeguard the ethos of climbing, and to ensure it was accessible for everyone.

The celebration, organised by the Climbers’ Club and the BMC, will be held in the Pennine lecture of Sheffield Hallam University’s City Campus, starting at 5.00pm and finishing about 6.30pm. The Heartspace Atrium, which adjoins the Pennine will be open and serving beer, wine, tea and coffee.

All are welcome.
