Flying up to Manchester in his own plane, Terris Moore, renowned Alpiner, led and instructed a Mountaineering Club expedition in its assault on Joe English Hill yesterday. Moore was a member of the first party ever to scale Minya Konds. 24,990 foot Chinese peak.
The southern face of Joe English Hill has a 500 feet wall which is supposed to contain all the scaling difficulties in miniature that ordinarily confront the Alpino climber. There are six possible routes of varying degree of difficulty, which make it an ideal laboratory for the Club.
