The July 2015 edition of Mountain Pro Magazine has now been published – an alpine special including articles from Jon Griffiths, Hendrik Morkel, and many others. My contribution is a feature on Professor Forbes and his 1842 journey through the Alps, specifically the Valpelline to Evolene section that I hiked a year ago.

In my article I explore the pass of Col Collon and examine the changes to the glaciers in that region since 1842. As I discovered, climate change has transformed the area almost beyond recognition.

Mountain Pro Magazine is free to read online. You can pick up the July 2015 issue here.

Attitudes and Altitude: a new Sidetracked project, and a journey across the Alps

I'll be spending much of the rest of the summer in the Alps, trekking and a bit of running from Ventimiglia to Zermatt. It's going to be an incredible adventure. I can't wait to begin.
