The Climbing Zine is a regularly produced print zine that climbOn has supported since the roots. We hope you'll pick up a copy to support independent media.
In an age when the power of the media has been given to the people, we are here to offer our own outlet for what rock climbing means to us, The Climbing Zine.
We were born on the rock face, in the moment, gripped, but so focused that our fear was transcended, and channeled. We climbed. We found the essence of climbing on the rock. We found a feeling like no other, a high, one of connecting with nature.
The culture of rock climbing is evolving and changing. We recognize that the only constant is change. The world is changing, how we interact, and how we tell our stories. Yet as much as climbing changes, its core remains the same. We’re beautifully human on a rock climb. We face our fear and overcome.
We care little for numbers, we care for words, and we love a great story.
The Climbing Zine is a collection of memories of treasured experiences. We are here to represent the soul of rock climbing and take it back to the essence.
