Detailed Product Description
2018. The 2018 issue of a new climbing journal, a superbly done annual in the style of the old Sierra Club Ascent Magazines of 1967-1989. Much more than a magazine, with extra heavy paper and incredible photos.
 
This issue contains these articles: 
 
VOODOO CHILD: Golden decades of first and early ascents with Richard Harrison, one of the least-known but most influential Stonemasters, before shadows caught him up. By John Long

THREE STARS: Writing gear reviews might seem mundane, but - like writing about, well, climbing- it's harder than you think. By Andrew Bisharat.

MY LETTER TO GOD: A lifelong climber pens the Big Guy a note wondering: Why do you keep trying to snuff me? Considering all his too-close calls, it seems a fair question. By Eric Sanford.

PARADOX IN PARADISE: On a normal day in the tropics of Maui, with its blossoming climbing scene, an alarm warns of an inbound ballistic missile. The author thinks about his sons, his life, and a long-ago climb. By Jeff Jackson.

THE ART OF CLIMBING: The history of climbing art hasn't been told, until now. While much has changed about how we view the mountains, the underlying theme of adventure still resonates. By Francis Sanzaro.

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 2018 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).
