The April 2017 UIAA Newsletter is now available.

The outcome of discussions held at a number of recent UIAA Commission meetings have enabled the UIAA to advance on a number of subjects. Over the past month the UIAA Medical, Ice Climbing, Youth and Mountaineering Commissions have all convened. Applications continue to roll in for the 2017 UIAA Mountain Protection Award, a platform UIAA member federations can use to promote sustainable mountain-based projects in their countries. The UIAA Safety Commission is looking for samples of failed climbing top anchors to assist in several related matters with the UIAA Climbing Anchor Standard 123. In-depth features explore Nutrition in Mountaineering and an emerging star in the world of ice climbing.  The world of mountaineering pays tribute to one of the greats, Ueli Steck.
