Nea Morin (21 May 1905 – 12 July 1986) was a British rock climber and mountain climber. She climbed in the Alps in the 1920s, joined the Ladies Alpine Club, and met many climbers in the French Groupe de Haute Montagne. In 1928 she married Jean Morin (1897–1943) and lived in Paris. She climbed often with other women and advocated the cordée féminine, climbing only with women on a rope. After the death of her husband in World War II, she lived in Tunbridge Wells and climbed in England and Wales. Her autobiography, A Woman's Reach (1968), describes her climbing and the achievement of other women in the mountains.
