Mountain Profile: Katahdin
Nestled into the woods of northern Maine, beyond the reaches of roads, Katahdin rises out of the 2,200-mile-long chain of Appalachian Mountains. Its weathered cliffs of pink-and-grey granite have inspired painters, poets and climbers for centuries. Katahdin, wrote East Coast climber Arnold Wexler after a two-week visit to the mountain in 1945, “rises in isolated splendor above a limitless forest of fir, spruce, and birch, laced with glittering lakes and serpentine rivers and streams.” Abbey Collins shares glimpses into the mountain’s history, which is marked by epic tales and well-kept secrets. Henry Barber and Laura Waterman recount their own experiences, with stories of climbing steep ice with suboptimal gear and route finding from a summit wrapped in clouds during the cold, quiet days of winter on Maine’s highest peak.

Painting on Location
In early 2023, Klara Maisch ventured to Denali base camp to paint Begguya from the Kahiltna Glacier. Herein, she reflects on the risks and rewards of painting remote mountain landscapes on location.

Passing the Rack
Tom Livingstone’s Young Alpinist Group (YAG) aims to give climbers from the United Kingdom and Ireland the type of mentoring he wished he’d had. In this story, he recounts what inspired him to start the YAG. “There’s a difference between what ... young alpinists want and what they really need,” he writes. “I was lucky enough to make a few mistakes without getting badly burnt.” Meanwhile, YAG alumni Carrie Beadle and Tim Exley share their perspectives.
