Figured I'd throw this up here, usually have it posted on the News section, but that seems to have disappeared. Thanks for reading. 

The Climbing Zine has made it to double digits, if only by the skin on their fingertips. The once black and white punk rock style zine, elevated to magazine status years ago, but they never forgot their roots. Volume 10, the “raw” issue is a tribute to that.

We have “Patience” by the seminal master of prose and bouldering Chris Schulte, Fill The Void, a piece about overcoming an eating disorder and finding peace and self esteem through climbing by Shay Skinner, and a touching tribute to Royal Robbins by his daughter Tamara.

And don’t forget about the too soon poetry—a Zine trademark—plus the closing piece “In Search Of My Dirtbag Princess” by Albert Kim—is sure to have the ladies searching after Albert while he crushes the cracks of Indian Creek wearing silver sequence shorts….

Volume 10, the “Raw” issue of The Climbing Zine can be found at your local gear shop, bookstore, or climbing gym, at, or on Kindle:
