Walter Parry Haskett Smith: The Climbing Polymath 
Born into wealth with family secrets & skeletons in the cupboard and links with a Jack the Ripper suspect, Frank Grant presents a revealing, illustrated talk on the long overdue biography of the father of British Rock Climbing, Walter Parry Haskett Smith.

Hear about Haskett Smith’s early rock climbs, his ascent of Napes Needle and how he climbed, walked, cycled, canoed in over 30 countries. Find out the truth about his climbing guide books, his close association with Maurice Byles and his descent into family estrangement, and finally, his lonely death with strangers.
