He was slowly being pulled off the mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope 50 metres below.  His decision to cut the rope saved both their lives in the epic of survival that followed and with the publication of the book ‘Touching The Void’ and the later film, both climbers became household names.

Told with wit, dry humour and lavishly illustrated with images and film collected on his great climbs.

The reasons for this are a combination of a consummately professional, yet distinctly personal performance, the familiarity of those wonderful Squeeze songs – both new and old, and the occasional spontaneous interpretation of a respected song by another artist.
