David Unwin



 Dronfield born, began climbing on the gritstone edges in 1957.   Studied Geography at University College where I ws an active member of the mountaineering club.  Thence to UCW Aberyswyth in 1967 for a few years before moving to Leicester and membership of the Bowline Climbing Club.  Which is pretty much it really: no big first ascents, no big alpine routes, and no really big mountains, just a life long passion for our hills.  Interests matured from rock to winter climbing and fell running but now too old to be competitive at anything.  A chance meeting with Dave T at a party and a mistaken identity led to membership of the BMC Clubs Working Group and the Landscape Working Group.
