Can someone post up the other two articles that went with the "Crawl Down The Ogre" in Mountain 57? It was a trio of articles under the heading of "Climbing Reconsidered" if I recall correctly. One was of Taylor and Barber on Kilimanjaro and off hand I forget what the third one was.

Are the articles in that edition? (it's up in the loft and a major faff to check).

Hey Steve!

The other articles healyje mentions aren't in #57. Here's the contents list for 57 (save you dragging your poor old body up into the loft):

12 Editorial comment
13 Information
20 The Gogarth Saga
36 Proposed E grades for Climbers' Club Guides
38 A Crawl Down The Eiger
47 Books
49 Obituary
50 Letters

E grades for CC guides... whatever next... kids'll be using gymnastic chalk on the crags, I wouldn't wonder. Where will it end? Grumble grumble... :)

Hmm, could of sworn the it was that one. Not sure where then, but it was the trio of stories (Ogre, Kilimonjaro, and another) each with their own title page, but preceded by that preface page of "Climbing Reconsidered". Must have been around that time, but maybe it was in Climbing. Thanks for posting up the ToC.

Scott has recently turned this episode into a short, well-illustrated book from Vertebrate Publishing (UK):

Doug sent me a copy of his book, "Up and About" last year. Excellent read and fascinating to see his bio on the very early years and subsequent development into a life of climbing.
