Since 1996 The Mountain Institute has worked in the world’s longest mountain range. Our inclusive approach bridges sustainable development, modern science and traditional knowledge. We help Andean communities become more resilient as they adapt to climate hange. As partners, we create more sustainable mountain economies while protecting ancient cultures and fragile ecosystems. What else? Most of the logo t-shirts are out of stock and I’m ordering more. Soon. Not as many color options. I’ve got a new logo for a t-shirt that’s going to be rad. And I’ve got a design for a hoody that going to be equally great because Fall’s coming. I received today a big fill-in order for jerseys in both the two styles – lots of long sleeve thermal jerseys, club cut short sleeves, and race cut short sleeves. And shorts in bib style and non-bib.

We will start by looking at the performances that this …

All But My Life by Gerda Weissman: a Polish Jewish woman loses her family in the Holocaust and survived against all odds. Her story is important. She details how she survived and it’s a harrowing experience. But the book was a little too long and drawn out. It has a surprisingly happy ending.

This kind of thing is nearly impossible to put down on paper, as you …

As many of you know, there are many apple, pear orchards throughout the Bradshaw’s that were planted in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. They still produce large crops of fruit but are subject to cool spring freezes which prevent them from producing. Ive had a chance to sample from most of these orchards through the years and all the apples are excellent tasting.

The Institute’s education model that combines academic learning with community building was developed in our Appalachian program and has been exported to other mountain regions. Over the decades, our courses have ranged from experiential learning trips and teacher training to field trips that take learning beyond the classroom into mountain wilderness areas. …

a natural elevation of the earth’s surface rising more or less abruptly to a summit, and attaining an altitude greater than that of a hill, usually greater than 2000 feet (610 meters). By Tuesday morning, we were re-packed and ready for a road trip! We set off first thing in the direction of the Peak District and after several set backs, eventually found both good rock and good routes in Cheedale. At Ravensdale, we discovered a voluntary bird ban, so re-located to Aldly Cliff, where we found the fixed anchors were being replaced (and therefore, currently removed). Then it started raining and our hopes for climbing seemed to be running out. As we walked into Chee Dale to ‘have a look’, the skies suddenly cleared and we were rewarded for our persistence!

Our attention has been drawn to the fragility of Planet Earth by the space programme. Ever since the …

Climbing The Mountain With Caleb

May has come and gone, and I’m thinking June has a spring in her step, much like May’s! The Kuffner Ridge, also know as the Frontier Ridge, on Mount Maudi was first climbed by Mortiz von Kuffner with Alexander Burgener, Josef Furrer, and a porter in 1887 and is one of these classic routes. This ridge is a complex buttress of exposed ridge and towers holding an entire days-worth of moderate mixed climbing and snow spines.

So I hauled up the anchor and motored round the end of Eilean an Tighe to the western side of the isthmus. This anchorage is open to the swell of the Little Minch and disturbed by the tidal movement through the Sound of Shiant. Despite this, with the light wind blowing Coral away from the islands, she felt safer. Two Danish yachts had already taken the best positions but I was able to find …
