- Author BiographyEdwin Drummond is a visionary climber and poet, creator some of the most famous routes in the British Isles. Born in Wolverhampton in 1945, the eldest son of a builder, Drummond was educated at Bangor and Bristol universities before becoming an English teacher in Sheffield. Trying his hand at various other trades he eventually became a full-time climber, writer and activist. He put up new climbing routes in the UK and on the Troll Wall, won awards for his poetry (two Keats prizes and a National Poetry prize) and used his climbing skills to raise awareness of a number of causes, such as the anti-apartheid movement. Other than his literary output, Drummond's lasting legacy is his physical poetry - the challenging and classic climbing routes he established across the UK and in the United States. In 2011 He appeared in the feature film The Long Hope, a documentary following elite climber Dave MacLeod's attempt to climb Drummond's route on St John's head on the island of Hoy. Including interviews with the author, who now sufferers from Parkinson's disease, and archive material, the film won the 'People's Choice' award at Kendal Mountain Film festival.
