This year sees the 80th anniversary of the original opening of the CIC Hut on Ben Nevis. It also sees the completion of a major new extension at the hut. A photo of Charles Inglis Clark climbing on Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh as a young boy accompanies an article by former hut custodian Gerry Peet. This is following by a profile of Graham Macphee, who in the 1930s took full advantage of the hut's location to pioneer a number of new routes on the North Face when writing the first guidebook to the mountain. Gordon Smith also writes again about his early winter adventures on Ben Nevis. This year also sees the 70th anniversary of the first Greater Traverse of the Cuillin by Charleson and Forde. This event is marked by several articles relating to Skye including one by Forde's daughter, Helen. There are lots of other stuff including climbing in Yosemite, paragliding in Torridon and Corbett bagging, plus details of all the rew routes done in Scotland over the last year.
