The Alpine Journal 2023 : Volume 127 127 Hardback


  • Information


The Alpine Journal reports on the world's most significant mountaineering from 2022, featuring articles from Nepal, Pakistan, Greenland and the Alps by leading alpinists Mára Hole’ek, Callum Johnson, Jacob Cook and Tom Livingstone. How women were written out of mountaineering history also features in this year's Alpine Journal, with Suzanne Strawther saving an early female ascent of the Matterhorn from oblivion, the lost art of Alpine pioneer Elizabeth Campbell, an excerpt from Rachel Hewitt's ground-breaking book In Her Nature and from John Middendorf a reappraisal of Miriam O'Brien, a leading alpinist from the 1920s. John Harding looks back on the mountain life of writer Robin Fedden, Dennis Gray recalls the legend that was Don Whillans and John Wilkinson revisits the aftermath of the first winter ascent of the Aiguilles du Diable: the Devil's Needles. Climate change and its impacts on the world's mountains are becoming obviously and rapidly worse.

We have reports from the Himalaya and on how retreating glaciers are affecting the flora of the Alps. With reports, reviews, art and comment from around the globe, the Alpine Journal has everything the dedicated alpinist needs to inspire and reflect.
