New feature in latest issue of Mountain Pro Magazine

Pilgrim's Progress article

Mountain Pro Magazine is a publication I’ve been proud to both read and contribute to for a while now. Edited by David Lintern, it includes articles on a wide range of mountain subjects, from climbing and skiing to conservation and natural history.

The latest is a ‘winter-weight’ issue including articles by Nick Bullock and Tom Ballard, a look at the best winter gear, and several great pieces on mountain history. My feature, Pilgrim’s Progress, is all about a century of winter climbing equipment: how things have changed, mainly for the better, and what it’s actually like to use Victorian gear in the Scottish mountains.

You can read the latest issue online here. It’s free to read and mobile-device friendly.
