Deep Play: A Climber's Odyssey from Llanberis to the Big Wallsby Paul Pritchard
With a unique voice that tests the boundaries of the adventure narrative genre, Paul Pritchard emerges as the epitome of this generation. A series
The height of Great Britain's unemployment crisis in the early 1980s spawned a disillusioned crop of climbers who lived on the dole, surviving on cold beans and white bread in snacks and caves, focusing only on climbing.
With a unique voice that tests the boundaries of the adventure narrative genre, Paul Pritchard emerges as the epitome of this generation. A series of stories creates a portrait of the author as he moves from climbing the crags of the local quarry to major expeditions and first ascents In South America and Antarctica. While recognizing that he is perceived as something of a rebel in society, Pritchard hopes that he has given something to climbing by "offering steep, mind-testing challenges for climbers to test themselves out".
