As the saying goes ‘For want of a horse the battle was lost’ and in a similar vain for want of a Colin Kirkus the trad climbing scene may have become a poor imitation of continental rock. It’s commonly believed that rock climbing in the UK started with Haskett Smith’s ascent of Napes Needle in the Lake District. From there onwards a number of luminaries pushed UK climbing to new grounds. Colin Kirkus was one of those who forged a path in the 1930’s. It became his decade.
