No Medals for Matilda


The athletic Dares all strive to Win trophies except Matilda, whose sport is rock climbing, which offers no such rewards. Her secret aim is to climb the Inaccessible Face of Clouds Crag and find the marker left by her grand-father, Sheridan Dare, whose dying claim to have made the ascent, has never been believed. Needing a rope partner, she meets Thea Black, staying locally on a climbing holiday. Thea reveals that she, too, wishes to climb the Inaccessible Face and they join forces. Matilda discovers that Thea has an old climbing diary written by Sheridan Dare.
