Book Review- Space below my feet by Gwen Moffat

I first came across Gwen Moffat through watching a short film by the talented Jenn Randall and Claire Carter - Operation Moffat. I was really interested to find out more about this extraordinary lady through her own words.  Being relatively new to climbing, I am only just learning about the history and what shaped the sport to be what it is now.  As a newly qualified climbing instructor with encouraging women to get into the outdoors being very high on my agenda,  I was really keen to read about Gwen and her take on being the first female guide in Britain. I started reading her story and not only I was instantly hooked by her excellent writing, it was obvious that this book will be something that I will recommend to all the girls who are interested in the outdoors.
