Basecamp is at the heart of any big adventure, it's a place to rest and recoup before the next big push toward the end goal. Hunkered down in less than ideal conditions, time in Basecamp provides an opportunity to share stories and beta, and gives a little space to get motivated and mentally prepare for the route ahead. Lifelong friendships are formed and partnerships flourish in this insular environment, and spending hours waiting for the next weather window makes it all the more satisfying when you're finally breaking trail to the bottom of your objective.

Our Basecamp takes on this role in digital form, offering up a selection of the most incredible stories from around the world, from chossy epics in obscure corners of the globe to the most sought after alpine classics. Trip reports, diary extracts, training tips and films and interviews all paint a vivid portrait of our mountain culture and ethos, meaning you can while away your down time getting inspired for your next opportunity to head to the mountains.
