Educated at Marlborough, Young began rock climbing shortly before his first term at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied Classics and won the Chancellor's Medal for English Verse two years running. While there, Young wrote a humorous college climbing guide called The Roof-Climber's Guide to Trinity, in part a parody of early alpine guidebooks, in part a useful reference. Winthrop Young also put up new routes on the crags of the Lake District and Wales. Book digitized by Google and uploaded to the Internet Archive by user tpb.
