About the author

While a teenager in Merseyside in the early 1960s, Pete McDonald took up hillwalking and rock climbing. In 1968 he worked as a temporary instructor at a residential centre in the Lake District. This opening led in 1976 to a permanent job as an instructor at White Hall Centre, where he spent sixteen years. In 1992 he emigrated to New Zealand, where he divided his time into roughly equal portions of fatherhood, teaching, writing and cycling.
