Grab a signed copy of leading mountaineer Nick Bullock’s debut book, Echoes.

Echoes: one climber’s hard road to freedom tells the story of Bullock’s escape from prison, where he worked as a prison officer in a maximum security jail with some of Britain’s most notorious criminals, to a new life amongst the world’s highest and most difficult mountains.

Nick Bullock was born on Christmas Day in 1965. After leaving school aged 16 he worked a variety of jobs before joining Her Majesty’s Prison Service in 1987 where he was posted to the high security Gartree Prison as a Wing Officer, then a Punishment Block Officer. In 1992 he was introduced to climbing at Plas y Brenin while training as a Physical Education Instructor: his life was about to change dramatically.

Devoting all of his free time to climbing, Nick quickly established himself as one of the UK’s leading climbers, making bold repeats in fine style of many of the UK’s most renowned traditional climbs. A veteran of over 20 expeditions to the greater ranges and approximately 50 Alpine routes, it is in the mountains where Nick has truly demonstrated his imagination and abilities, making significant ascents and failing on some audacious attempts around the world with partners such as Jules Cartwright, Al Powell, Kenton Cool and, more recently, Andy Houseman. In 2003 he quit the prison service and has since devoted his life to climbing and writing. His work has been published in Alpinist, Climb Magazine, Vertical, The Alpine Club Journal, The American Alpine Journal and more.

“Wild, exciting and inspirational. A book that grips you throughout with wild tales from handling Britain’s most notorious criminals to tackling some of the world’s most exciting unclimbed lines. I loved it.”
Mick Fowler
