Rupert Hoare 1956-2011

Thursday, 22nd September 2011

We were saddened to hear this morning of the passing of Rupert Hoare, author of the recently published Mountain Views. Rupert died at Roxburghe House, Aberdeen, early on Tuesday 20th September, eight months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Within the first six months, Rupert wrote Mountain Views, intended primarily for friends and family, and we worked with Rupert to publish the title as swiftly as possible. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rupert on this book. 

Our thoughts at this time are with Rupert's wife Jay, and with his family. 

Further information regarding memorial services may be found on the Eagle Ski Club website.

'I was inspired to try mountaineering by reading R. L. G. Irving’s The Romance of Mountaineering. I hope that my book can likewise inspire at least one teenager to find similar joy and beauty in the mountains.'
Rupert Hoare, 1956–2011
