Glyn Hughes writes: I am sorry to have to tell members of the death of our member Terence Goodfellow. Terence had been an AC member since 1962, introduced to the Club by his father Basil Goodfellow, an AC Hon Secretary, who also started Terence on his alpine career.
Terence was a President of the Cambridge University Mountaineering Club, and while at university was member of an expedition to Baffin Island.
In 1968 he was a member of a team who climbed Miangul Sar in Swat Kohistan. We believed this to be a first ascent, but later discovered we had been pipped to the post by an Austrian party who climbed it from the opposite side. At least ours was a new route.
Terence was a regular attender at AC lectures until quite recently when his mobility became restricted.
