To celebrate the 125th year of the MCSA, our Supertramps explored the world:
  - Micha Stiller trekking solo for
400 kilometres of rural Himalayan Nepal solo and unassisted over the course of three weeks, allowing him to immerse himself in culture and landscape virtually untouched by tourism.
  - Chris Arderne, Michael Kloos and Rick Kotze bagged volcanoes in the Cordillera Neovolcanica in Mexico
  - Alex Bester explored bouldering options in Chimanimani Mountains in Zimbabwe
  - Jed Johnson and Craig Burton went rock climbing in Ethiopia
  - Tiffany Wells and Kirsten Roberts climbed in South East Asia
 Congratulations to all!  Sincere thanks to the donor for a cool R128 000.

The Mountain Research Initiative
The MRI is an international organization based in Switzerland that aims to advance Global Change research in mountains. Check out the latest events at MRI Global News.  How about a degree in Earth and Environmental Science at a university endorsed by the Aga Khan?
AfroMont, the African branch, is of particular relevance to us.
