This was the first re-printing of Rum Doodle. We got a letter from Geoff Birtles, who ran a climbing shop in the Peak District, asking if he could re-publish. My father was very happy to let that happen. The edition was a facsimile of the original 1956 Max Parrish edition. Dark Peak is no longer in business.

Other Rum Doodles...

Since its first publication, the words Rum Doodle have been taken by fans of the book for a variety of purposes: the Rumdoodle sleeping bag, Rumdoodle cllimbing company, Rumdoodle the rock band!

If you have a Rum Doodle to share, send us pictures, files, links and slideshows and we will share them with the Rum Doodling community.
