The Escapades of a Lancashire Climber by Peter H Benson

Peter Benson began climbing in the 1950s when hemp waistlines and Tricounis were de rigeur.  In 1976 he joined the Rucksack Club and became a regular contributor to the club’s annual journal.  Many of the twenty-four stories in Rucksacks At Dawn!! appeared first in a Rucksack Club journal. For over seven decades Peter has practised rockclimbing and other outdoor activities with a burning enthusiasm in all weathers.  The stories relate to days and, at times, weeks when he climbed with friends and walked on mountains large and small in the UK and in Europe.  In his own words “the adjectives you can never apply to mountaineering activities are dull and boring”, and the same can be said for this book!
