Inspired by the book " Feeding The Rat: A Climber’s Life On The Edge", by
Al Alvarez.

Feeding the Rat is the story of an extraordinary man: climbing legend and Snowdonia resident Mo Anthoine, who found his greatest joy in adventures that tested the far limits of human endurance.

His passion for “feeding the rat” made him the unsung hero of dozens of horrifying epics in the mountains, including the famous ogre expedition that nearly killed Doug Scott and Sir Chris Bonington.

The book also celebrates the story of the extraordinary friendship between Mo and adrenaline junky Al Alvarez – the distinguished poet, journalist and critic – whose deeply moving portrait of his longtime climbing partner is a classic of adventure literature.
