About Paul Pritchard

Paul Pritchard's first book, Deep Play: A Climber's Odyssey from Llanberis to the Big Walls, won him the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature. Ironically, it was the prize money that launched him on the climbing tour that ended on the Totem Pole in Tasmania. His next book, The Totem Pole and a Whole New Adventure, tells the story of that seastack rockfall and its consequences. It won the Boardman Tasker a second time and the Grand Mountain Book Prize at the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival in Canada.
