About the Author

Julie Tullis was, in her lifetime, Britain's highest female mountaineer, having summited K2. She spent her childhood in post-war London and - when not travelling the world to climb - lived with her husband Terry in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, teaching climbing to the disadvantaged and children with special needs on the southern sandstone. Terry and Julie had two children, Christopher and Lindsay. Julie trained to black belt standard in both judo and aikido, and was a high-level mountaineer and filmmaker alongside Kurt Diemberger. Julie died on high on K2 in 1986.

Peter Gillman is a British journalist and writer specialising in mountaineering topics.
