Official Release Party for The Climbing Zine Volume 3

The Firebrand Delicatessen will host “A Climbing Zine Thing” on Thursday June 30 at 6:30 p.m. The event will celebrate the official release of the third volume of The Climbing Zine, written by Colorado author Luke Mehall.

The Climbing Zine is an independent publication that aims to offer a unique view on the world of climbing, and its culture. The zine focuses primarily on the essence of climbing, and the journey that takes place during these adventures.

The featured story from volume three is called “Go West Young Man in The Freedom Mobile”, a tale about two men heading from Colorado to California, in late autumn, a vehicle well over 200,000 miles that seemed destined to break down at any moment; all for the hope to climb another day as the climbing season is winding down.

Mehall and Al Smith III (co-founders of The Climbing Zine) will present slideshows of recent adventures and misadventures, and the Firebrand will be selling wine and beer. The event is free, and copies of The Climbing Zine will be for sale. Attendees are asked to show up on time so the Firebrand crew can get their beauty sleep, in order to wake up and serve the people Friday morning.

The Firebrand is located at 108 N. Main St. in Gunnison. Any further questions about the event can be directed to Mehall at

All volumes of The Climbing Zine can be read for free online at
