Dorothy Pilley, English climber in Glacier National Park

Dorothy Pilley Richards (1894 - 1986) was a prominent female mountaineer. She began climbing in Wales and joined the Fell and Rock Climbing Club. In the 1920s, she climbed extensively in the Alps, Britain, and North America after her marriage to Ivor Armstrong Richards. In 1928, she made the celebrated first ascent of the north ridge of the Dent Blanche, with Joseph Georges, Antoine Georges and her husband, which she described in her well-regarded memoir, Climbing Days (1935). Photograph in the Illustrated Sporting & Dramatic News magazines weekly Women in Sport feature. The magazine comments that, " She is light of build and very active. Those who climbed with her in the Lake District some years ago are enthusiastic about her ability for really hard and technically difficult work." Date: 1927
