No Map Could Show Them. The pioneering Victorian women in mountaineering of the early twentieth Century. The women whose narratives and achievements became lost in the mountains, where they forged paths and ascended; their stories brought back down to earth, only to be silenced by the patriarchy.
Rediscovering and amplifying the voices of these female mountaineers today is acclaimed poet and keen climber Helen Mort, in her latest poetry anthology No Map Could Show Them. Natalie Berry interviews Helen on combining the introspective world of writing with the creative escape of the great outdoors, alongside poem readings and our UKC filmpoem 'Dear Alison.'
In July 2015, Leo Houlding led a five-strong team to make the first ascent of Reflections, (E6 6b, A3+, 1250m) on the North West face of the Mirror Wall in Greenland, spending twelve nights on the wall. Although cracking the Mirror was unlikely to cause a superstitious seven years of bad luck, it proved to be a life-affirming trip for Leo in many respects.
A film of the team's ascent - Mirror Wall - is now available online for free. Our UKC Digital Feature explores the ascent through interview, photographs, an interactive topo and the film itself, presented by Berghaus and Coldhouse Collective.
It's not the length of one's life that matters most; it's the width. Dave, in touching so many of us, led a very wide life, and that is to be admired.
The north face of the Grandes Jorasses is one of the steepest and most beautiful in the Alps. At 1.5km wide and 1200m mile high it is an impressive sight. Alongside the Eiger, Drus, Matterhorn, Piz Badile and Cima Grande di Lavaredo it is one of the six 'classic' north faces of the Alps.
