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.

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.
