The July 2017 UIAA Newsletter is now available.
The UIAA Safety Commission’s recent meeting in Woerden, the Netherlands provided an opportune moment to reflect on the federation’s commitment to mountain safety: past, present and future. A subsequent visit to Outdoor2017, the international tradeshow in Friedrichshafen, enabled the UIAA to further discussions with many of its Safety Label holders. Three years on from the publication of the UIAA paper ‘Natural Rock for Adventure Climbing’, Doug Scott reflects on its impact and the current landscape for traditional climbing. In mountain medicine, the focus turns to advice for individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular conditions. The dates and programme for 2018’s Sustainable Summit Conference are announced while the role of the routesetters in ice climbing and the access situation in Spain come under the spotlight.
