Alpine Climbing: Quiet Pursuit of the Ridiculous

BY WILL CADELL
@ VOL 1 ON FEB 18, 2014

It doesn’t have to be fun to be fun. It can be the difficulty that defines the experience and the challenges overcome which makes the moments of quiet in the mountain so sublime. Will Cadell explores the Jekyll and Hyde personas of alpine climbers to show that for every Jekyll that complains and wants to quit, there is a Hyde that says, "don't think, keep going."

Everest Base Camp Trek

BY HANNAH BUNGARD
@ VOL 12 ON APR 11, 2017

Altitude sickness, nosebleeds, and some of the most incredible views are all part and parcel of the week-long trek to Everest Base Camp. Hannah Bungard tells us of her trek, starting with the terrifying flight into Lukla. The trip should not be undertaken lightly, as not all of her group made it to base camp. If you do brave the altitude, however, you stand to gain an experience of a lifetime.

What humanising healthcare and climbing mountains have in common

BY MATTHIJS BOSVELD

Advancements in technology are shaping the future of healthcare. The quality of care improves tremendously, but at the same time technology distances us from the human connection. As a medical student, Matthijs Bosveld experienced the lack of patient-centred education and felt the need to do something about this. Matthijs shares his experience in initiating change in medical education and draws on the similarities between climbing mountains and change.
