'Bred en bawn in a brier-patch, Brer Fox--bred en bawn in a brier-patch!'

SHE was known for doing a spot of climbing back in the day.

See THIS.

Lichen head. Me, with my usual weatherbeaten, lichen covered look from scrubbing a new route.

She almost made it to 100 and seemed to live life very well. Bon voyage!

Spectacular climing career and wonderful woman. A legend who will be much missed.

Nameless boulder on the edge of the Holy Boulders area in SoIll.

According to Wikipedia: "She married Dick Hirschland, a mountaineer, in 1935. Their honeymoon ascent of the Matterhorn in Switzerland was her first introduction to climbing. She first climbed in the Gunks in 1936 with her husband along with Fritz Wiessner and Hans Kraus." I think that's awesome.
