I'm sure some of you have already read this, but I recently was laid up and got it off amazon. It really is a great collection of essays, exposing the inner workings of many climbers minds.
If some of our contemporary climbing mags had writers as good as these I might subscribe.

Never happen. It takes more than 15 seconds to read those types of articles. \:\)

Yes Alpinist.
Their articles take more than 15 minutes to write too!

Unfortunately their content hasn't kept the standards set by the first dozen issues. But, itÂ’s still a great magazine that I support as well as read.

If you don't appreciate it then stick with one of the less expensive magazines, if you buy any at all.
