One of the best rock climbers in the world will be sharing his experiences at a Crosspool Festival event.
Having climbed the hardest sport route in the UK, Steve McClure knew from early childhood encounters with the sandstone outcrops of the North York Moors that he was destined to be a rock climber.
Now Sheffield based, his new book, Beyond Limits, tells the story of a climber and his obsessive exploration of the sport, of finding a true passion, taking it to the limits, and then the careful balancing of this passion against other areas of life to give the greatest rewards.
Steve will be giving his illustrated talk A Life through Rock Climbing on Wednesday 1 July 7.30pm (bar open from 7pm) at Hallam FC clubhouse on Sandygate Road in Crosspool.
Admission is free, but there will be a retiring collection for festival charities. Signed copies of Steve’s book will be on sale.
