Jack Clayton

Joining Mpora as an Associate Editor in 2015, Jack has been the title's Editor since November 2018. He likes getting outside, going for big walks, regularly revising the highest mountains in the world in case they come up in a Zoom quiz, doing the whole #microadventure thing in the green areas that surround London, and wild camping in a bivy bag as he finds putting up a tent "too much effort, to be honest." He also likes skiing (he went to Hokkaido in January 2020 and, well, he enjoyed himself let's put it like that), traveling to places he hasn't been before, and hauling his lanky frame up bouldering walls. He's also a big fan of nice-looking outdoorsy jackets, backpacks, and hiking boots, and contributes regularly to outdoor gear website Outdoors Magic.
