Detailed Product Description

In this issue:

Mountain Profile:  Mont Blanc

Secrets of the Maps:  Tamotsu Nakamura Mapmaker & Photographer of remote mountains of Tibet and China

Link Star:  American first ascent  of a 7031m peak in the Karakoram

Departments
Sharp End
Amid recent Himalayan news about inaccurate summit claims, our editor-in-chief asks: What is the measure of a mountain?

Letters
A reader recalls a favorite climb with a favorite Alpinist writer.

On Belay
In August 2019, nearly two years after Hayden Kennedy’s death, Jesse Huey and Maury Birdwell set out to complete one of their friend’s dreams: a direct finish to a route that Kennedy and Whit Magro had established on Mt. Hooker in the Wind River Range.

Namesake
The origins of a Bogus Mountain.

Tool User
Many have come to rely on handheld GPS systems for navigation in the backcountry or for proof of summit claims. Damien Gildea examines impacts of this increasingly widespread technological aid.

The Climbing Life
Astra Lincoln charts an inner map of the Winds. Tami Knight pays homage to Ed Spat and the bygone glory of the Ahwahnee Brunch. Steve Jervis presents a climbing quiz, with the help of some (possibly imaginary) friends. Katherine Indermaur takes the pulse of sandstone. Anaheed Saatchi interviews a few of the many women who are transforming modern climbing culture.

Full Value
Joe Purtell confronts fear, grief and beauty in the Cirque of the Unclimbables.

Wired
As the news about today’s climate crises grows increasingly grim, Manasseh Franklin explores how climbing writers might be able to help inspire positive action.

Local Hero
Paul Koubek shares scenes from the life of climbing guide and award-winning YOSAR team member Jo Whitford.

Off Belay
Katharine Erwin presents the mysterious Wolf of EEOR.

Plus much much more. 

Alpinist is a superb archival-quality, quarterly publication dedicated to world alpinism and adventure climbing. It has been called by Reinhold Messner ‘The best climbing magazine in the world today".

Issues include a Mountain Profile section covering the history of a particular peak, Letters, Climbing Notes, and additional feature articles about unique climbs. What sets Alpinist apart from other climbing magazines is the prodigious use of full-page color photos and minimal advertising.

Alpinist has won several awards – a Maggie Award for Best Quarterly/Consumer Division in 2004 (Winter 2003–2004 Issue 5), Print Magazine's 2004 Regional Design Award for the cover of Spring 2004 Issue 6, and a Maggie Award for Best Overall Design/Consumer Category in 2005 (Autumn 2004 Issue 8).

In December, 2007 a disastrous fire destroyed Alpinist’s Illinois fulfillment center. Gone were back issues and merchandise including hats, shirts, water bottles, stickers and coffee mugs.

Alpinist is a collectible item which, like Alpinism, Ascent, Mountain Review, Mountain World, North American Climber, Polar Circus, Vulgarian Digest, and others, doesn’t take up too much shelf space, or weight.
