Claude Davies was born in Taxal, Derbyshire, and started climbing in 1952. Since then he has continued to climb extensively in the UK, particularly his local crags close to where he lives with his wife, Betty, in New Mills, Derbyshire, while also visiting and climbing in other parts of the world. Upon retirement from his position as partner in a firm of consulting structural and civil engineers in 1994, Claude has been able to indulge his desire to climb and has made repeated trips to Morocco to explore opportunities in the Anti-Atlas.
He is a member of the Alpine Club and a former vice president of the Climbers Club. Claude has retained his membership of the Cromlech Club which he joined very soon after he began climbing. When not climbing, he spends his time playing golf and fishing for salmon.
Guidebook includes climbing routes on 25 immense crags on the south side of Morocco's Jebel el Kest, 120km south-east of Agadir, based from Tafroute. The superb rock conditions on the pink quartzite rock provide excellent and adventurous rock climbing routes of up to 500 metres high across all grades.
