Description

William was asked to illustrate the Fell & Rock Climbing Club guide-books in 1935 and 'Pillar' was the first one of the series, edited by H.R.Kelly. This painting, produced during that period, captures the lingering spirit of the climbing pioneers of that era, as well as the forbidding sight of Pillar Rock emerging menacingly out of the mist.

"Going back now (in spirit) to the main cairn of Pillar Fell, we can drink the view in great deep draughts :-and yet, to be honest, Pillar catches the mists, more than any fell, though for those on the tops a drifting mist is a very gift of heaven"

(Walking in the Lake District - H. H. Symonds, p64)
