Constructing my 19th century style ice axe in 2010

An article of mine has today been published on the UKClimbing.com website. It’s entitled “Inside the Tweeds of a Victorian Gentleman Climber”, and is a brief discussion of my experiments in vintage climbing gear and techniques. In the article I also discuss how this practical approach affected my writing and enabled me to get inside the heads of my characters.

Check out the article here.
