Breaking the women's barrier on El Cap
Yosemite's easiest route can be deadly
Sea of Dreams El Cap by Jim Bridwell
Russ Clune, America's most travelled climber
Ethiopia photo gallery
Astroman with Thomas Huber
Climbing zombies are here
Two Nepalese fly off Everest
Damn you everest!
more.....
 
Conceived by Allen Steck and Steve Roper — real-deal climbers, diamond tough — Ascent was the first climbing-only magazine with literary writing and high-quality photos. Ascent was, as Roper noted, a 'far-out idea.'

Rock and Ice is pleased to announce that Ascent is back again, and packed full with the very best inspiration and stories climbers have to offer.

Climbing’s most prestigious and acclaimed publication, Ascent is a superb blend of tradition and innovation. This 2015 volume shares intense, personal accounts of climbs and achievements that have shaped the sport as we now know it.  Ascent presents a panorama of experiences with prose and imagery that is as finely honed as a set of front points. Ascent deserves a permanent place on the shelf of every serious climber. New Magazine style format, softcover, with perfect binding (that means squared off and glued, not stapled).
