Lizzie Le Blond's Album #6: “Mountaineering from a Woman's Point of View"

If Album 4 is the definitive guide to sporting life in St. Moritz, Album 6 is the authoritative guide on how to climb for girls. Lizzie used a number of photos from this album to illustrate “A Girl’s Climbing Lesson” in the magazine Girl’s Realm from September, 1907. Again, Lizzie was especially vague about discussing her climbing in her autobiography, most likely as it was somewhat of a scandalously masculine hobby for a woman of her class. By founding the Lady's Alpine Club, she was able to find a public venue where at least her climbing adventures could be published without imposing too much grief upon her family.
