Trevor "Carlos" Hodgson
May 08, 2020, 07:03:58 pm
All due respect to Shark, who has already reported this in RIP, but I believe Trev deserves a separate thread. From all reports, Trevor "Carlos" Hodgson, merry prankster and hardcore slatehead of the 80s Beris scene, died peacefully this afternoon.

Sad news. I knew him to chat to BITD and we got him as guest speaker at a uni dinner. Remember one of his stories about soloing on slate. He used to solo listening to music on a Walkman. Can’t remember which one but he was soloing an E5 and then disaster struck - the tape ran out!. He said turning the tape over was the crux.

I didn't know or meet him but I was inspired by the photos of him in the Paul Williams Llanberis guide when I first started climbing.

I was sad to hear of Trev's death. Man had a lot of energy.

Just spotted that he'd logged a few of his exploits from back in the day on UKC https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/showlog.php?id=107377

Frightening stuff!

O/S solo of For Whom the Bell Tolls is pretty special.
