"Mountain is written and presented by Christoper Sleight and is a must hear for anyone with even a passing interest in the outdoors. All of the episodes are brilliantly researched, written and presented human stories which cover a huge variety of subjects - some moving, some funny, some exciting. All of the episodes are worth hearing and I hope it returns soon."
