The Jo Porter Collection

About Jo

Jo Porter discovered the hills in his teenage years while apprenticed to a Design Studio. Every weekend was spent camping, walking, climbing and caving with his brother and friends. After National Service with the Royal Engineers he met his wife Mollie on a mountaineering expedition to Spitsbergen and they both moved to the Cairngorms to become instructors at Glenmore Lodge. Jo spent two and a half years in the Antarctic working for the British Antarctic Survey and has continued to work as a scientific assistant on a long series of scientific projects in the Cairngorms over the years. From his early years as a climber with many first ascents to his name, to later years when he turned to long distance walks, Jo’s enthusiasm for the mountains has never dimmed.
