We were very saddened to learn of the passing this weekend of Ken Wilson, founder of Baton Wicks and a giant in the outdoor publishing world. The man who started and edited Mountain magazine, who inspired generations of climbers and mountaineers with the books he published, and who passionately defended his strong beliefs on British climbing ethics. He will be greatly missed.
