Colin Kirkus (19 June 1910-13 September 1942), was one of the most influential climbers Britain has ever produced. He climbed extensively in Wales and elsewhere, such as the Alps and the Himalaya.
Kirkus left the world of mountaineering two tremendous legacies: firstly his pioneering climbs in Wales and elsewhere, and secondly one of the finest instruction books ever written: Let's Go Climbing!.
