Mountain is an award-winning show about adventure in wild places. We tell stories about climbers and explorers, lovers and kidnappers, racers, travellers — and even violinists.

The podcast is a crafted mix of interviews, sound and music, brought together to tell compelling and immersive stories. Mountain was launched in 2015 and is one of the UK’s most popular outdoors podcasts.

Fans of the show have called it “gripping”, “beautifully produced”, “wonderfully eclectic” and “simply stunning”. It’s also been praised for its “real emotion and human heart”.

Mountain is hosted and produced by Christopher Sleight, a radio producer, journalist and climber living in Scotland.
