CRUX Mag -- issue #6 9-Apr-2008 At 12:20:14 PM Romfrantic
esther, must say your comments did have some resonance for me (agreed on the centrefold, and that fashion article...hmmmm) - sorry to say, but yes I was a little dissapointed too.

Maybe I had different expectations for this mag's issue 6. Certainly from what was advertised, a focus on the 'Gals', I was expecting a lot more on women climbers/climbing/etc etc ...but can't really see how it lived up to that - to me it looked like just your 'normal' mag. Perhaps I was after more profiling/interviews with female climbers of all types - not just the elite competitors (who are always very inspiring!), but also the loads of women out there who work and contribute to the sport in their way whether they be bumblies(sp?) right through to sport champions - for example, there are plenty who work at building and promoting the climbing community....Unfortunately, it is so easy to say but so hard to do - I would've loved to have contributed with an article for this Issue in such a way, but this PhD has a hold on my life at the moment that is quite stressful...anyway, off-topic.

So yeah, I really appreciate the efforts that go into Crux, I genuinely look forward to it ...more so than I ever did for Rock. But maybe for this "Girl Power" issue the editorial could have gone to a "guest" female editor for example? ...ahhhhh....should've, could've, would've .....;-)

BUT, having said all that, you guys at Crux really rock and your work is awesome and very much appreciated - but some constructive criticism is necessary sometimes for improvement such as in this instance (this is to help you stand out from the rest even more!) :-)
