In this issue:
Volume 18 is intended to be an issue of hope. A means to resurrect the dreams we still hold close and hope will one day soon be available to us again. It is intended to ensure we remember what it is to cherish that hope and nurture the inspiration that leads to courage and the eventual breaking of borders and boundaries. Whether those boundaries are physical, like the deep crevasse into which Ally Swinton fell after summiting Koyo Zom in the Hindu Raj mountains in Pakistan, or political, like the Yunnan borderlands in which Cat Vinton found the indigenous Akha people, or even cultural, as with the limitations placed on Wafaa Amer early in her climbing career.
As Martin Hartley observes in the foreword for this volume, the cover choice for this edition was unusually easy to make. James Bowden’s image, from his search for cold water surf in Iceland, is a reflection of how the world has changed since our last issue. We have spent more time inside than out in order to survive the invisible storm sweeping around the planet. We look outwards, then turn inwards to dream. Hope comes through dreams. ‘Jan ha to jahan ha,’ Uisdean Hawthorn tells us, from the Hindu Raj mountains in Pakistan: ‘where there is life, there is hope’. We must never give up, despite hardship. As Brice Minnigh and Dan Milner discovered during their mountain-bike circumnavigation of south-western Russia’s Mount Elbrus, sometimes it takes a little longer to get where we need to be than expected.
As Martin says, the outdoors is still there waiting for us, albeit with retreating glaciers, shrinking ice caps, and vanishing species. Human impacts have now been felt on every square mile of the Earth. As Sophie Dingwall demonstrates when she explores the true effects of plastic in the oceans, we have ventured into the habitats of every living thing and impacted our own in ways we don’t yet understand. But we must and we can only do that by understanding our place in the world and our connections to each other. We must not let the changes wrought by this global pandemic push us apart. As Oli Broadhead realized whilst crossing Sumatra, welcoming arms can change everything.
Soon, the world will once again welcome strangers into its homes and hearts.
