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.

Seek the mayglow while you can, for it is fleeting

May has long been one of my favourite months of the year, but it's not all about Scottish Alpine spring, as you might expect from a mountaineer based in Scotland. One of the things I have learnt about myself is that I need more from nature than mountains.
