the wonder of winter

Cover photograph: On Crinkle Crags, Lake District by Tom Bailey. I’ll never forget the first time I stood on top of a mountain in full winter conditions. It was Helvellyn, which we’d climbed from the usually dull Thirlmere side, and I couldn’t quite believe what I’d just experienced. We’d had the full kaleidoscope of conditions – sun, snow, cloud, spindrift, wind, sub-zero temperatures – and I’d made every basic mistake a novice winter walker could make. Ripped my trousers with a careless crampon spike, frozen my fingers almost solid by poor glove choice, lost a waterproof dry bag to a wild gust of wind... you name it, I did it. But the rewards I received in return? Wow. Snow does incredible things to our mountains, and for a few magical hours…

What is there to say about Blencathra that hasn’t already been said? What secrets does it hold that haven’t yet been revealed? What hidden charms can this most obvious of Lakeland fells possibly hide within its saddle-backed slopes? If you’re familiar with Blencathra, you’ll appreciate that these are ridiculous questions. ‘The People’s Mountain’ may have been the subject of its own documentary film, but if you really want to know the mountain, you need to explore it for yourself. And Blencathra offers a wealth of ways to do just that. From the knife-edge thrills of Sharp Edge or the spectacularly backdropped clamber up Hall’s Fell Ridge, to the more leisurely ascent via Scales Fell or the open-sloped wilderness of Mungrisdale Common, there’s more than one way to reach the top…

meet the man who climbed europe

“BEFORE MY ADVENTURE, SNOWDON WAS THE HIGHEST PEAK I’D CLIMBED. I JUMPED IN AT THE DEEP END!” Meet Adam Stevenson, a 28-year-old from Chester who’s just smashed his way into the Guinness World Records by climbing the highest peak in 50 European countries in less than six months. If you think that sounds impressive, listen to this: he had no experience of climbing mountains before he took on the challenge. Not only is Adam the first person to summit all 48 European High Points in a single climbing season (Mont Blanc and Mount Korab are both shared by two countries), he also did it in support of Trail’s Mountains for the Mind campaign, raising over £800 for mental health charity Mind. We had one burning question when he finished – how…

• JOIN A MOUNTAINS FOR THE MIND WALK Mountains for the Mind, Trail’s mental health awareness campaign, reached the roof of Britain in October with our latest group-walk on Ben Nevis. Thanks to the volunteers at Black Dog Outdoors, who organised and led the walk, and our partners at Berghaus and Ellis Brigham who donated some free kit to everyone who took part. Visit mountainsforthemind.co.uk for details of the free monthly walks we’re running throughout 2020. • MAP OUT YOUR MUNRO BAGGING TRIPS To coincide with the centenary of the death of Sir Hugo Munro, and the 40-year anniversary of Harvey Maps, the Scottish mapmaker has produced a cracking new book called The Munros: The Complete Collection of Maps. It’s a peak bagger’s dream, with detailed maps of all 282 Munro peaks. • DONATE…

five questions: for europe’s top peak bagger

1 How did you find the time (and money)? “It took some pretty drastic actions and sacrifices. I started by quitting my job, but fortunately they left my position open. I already had my house on the market, so the sale provided me with the ideal pot to fund the project.” 2 Where did the idea for your challenge come from? “From a close friend of mine late last year. We’d initially planned to do the whole challenge together, but on our first climb in Ireland he sustained a back injury and had to pull out. It was a heavy blow just one country in.” 3 What was the hardest part of the whole trip? “Travel and logistics. Getting to all 48 high points, from Iceland to the southern border of Russia, was something I…
