No Map Could Show Them. The pioneering Victorian women in mountaineering of the early twentieth Century. The women whose narratives and achievements became lost in the mountains, where they forged paths and ascended; their stories brought back down to earth, only to be silenced by the patriarchy.
Rediscovering and amplifying the voices of these female mountaineers today is acclaimed poet and keen climber Helen Mort, in her latest poetry anthology No Map Could Show Them. Natalie Berry interviews Helen on combining the introspective world of writing with the creative escape of the great outdoors, alongside poem readings and our UKC filmpoem 'Dear Alison.'
In this full screen Digital Feature, Jack Geldard and Nick Brown explore the life and tragic death of Alison Hargreaves and how her achievements have influenced her son, Tom Ballard.
With stunning historical images and exclusive video, this feature captures the experiences of Alison and Tom in an absorbing and aesthetic style and delves in to the extraordinary lives of both mother and son.
