Carl McKeating is from Yorkshire. He is the co-author with Rachel Crolla of several books, including Europe’s High Points, Walking in the Auvergne and Outdoor Adventures with Children: Lake District published by Cicerone. Carl has also worked on the Yorkshire Gritstone: Volume 2 climbing guide for the YMC (2014) and is the co-updater with Rachel Crolla of Steve Ashton’s classic, Scrambles in Snowdonia (Cicerone, 2017). A rock climbing and mountaineering enthusiast, in addition to ascending all of Europe’s national high points, in 2010 he completed a long-standing ambition to climb all the routes in Ken Wilson’s Classic Rock, which he followed with a three-month climbing and mountaineering tour of America. A keen cyclist, in recent years Carl has cycled the Way of the Roses and Yorkshire Dales Cycle Way as day challenges. A qualified English teacher, the 2020 lockdown saw him complete a geocritical and Romanticism-focussed PhD about Mont Blanc in British Culture. Carl and Rachel are passionate about enthusing the next generation of hikers, mountaineers and cyclists with a love of the outdoors.
