JOE BROWN


Joe Brown: tributes


"Joe Brown was an exceptional role model in many respects. From humble beginnings he progressed to pushing standards in UK climbing and world mountaineering. His legacy will live on through the numerous first ascents and his climbs are still on any aspiring climbers 'tick list'."


LYNN ROBINSON, BMC PRESIDENT.


“Joe’s eye for a line and his uncanny rock-sense were unique, while ethics and style were important to him. After all, he’d made his name in the days when protection was minimal and long runouts the norm, and he believed that if one couldn’t climb a route cleanly F


un to work with and full of practical suggestions, he was an unassuming man, never courting the inevitable publicity


JOHN CLEARE, PHOTOGRAPHER, MOUNTAINEER AND WRITER.

. As I , his wit and


unadulterated passion for climbing that shone through....a climber’s climber


. He will be missed but never replicated! RAB CARRINGTON, BMC PATRON , it should be left for someone who could. , he was


always good for a laugh or a game of darts, and with his courtesy and big, slow smile, Joe had time for everyone.”


“Immense sadness to hear of the death of my good friend Joe Brown whom I have known for over 60 years and had some wonderful climbs with him. He was one of the most brilliant innovative climbers the world has seen and a very special human being.”


SIR CHRIS BONINGTON, BMC PATRON
