Promoting a curious, adventurous and inclusive approach to the outdoors - where Slow doesn't mean snail-pace, but everything in its own time. The real outdoors, for real people by authentic mountain folk.



The Gentle Mountaineer

The Slow Mountain Company was created in 2015 by The Gentle Mountaineer, Ruth  - a long-time mountain enthusiast, geologist and supporter of ethical and sustainable lifestyles. For years, Ruth felt that something was missing from the mountain narrative; a more mindful appreciation of the mountains lost amongst a culture that puts sport before wonder. For the full story read on About Us and what we're trying to create with The Slow Mountain Co.
