Roadtrip Planning - Squamish

Or maybe keeping track of lost brothers and sisters, offspring, grandfathers, x's. Squamish Climbing Magazine is now being produced up over in the vicinity of the big show. Two issues so far posted at:

Color and on-line - you can print the thing off the website. Pics, beta, topos, tips and so on. Some coverage beyond Squamish rock.

Check it out.

This must be spam too, as its not free to air, you have to have paid for internet usage to view it.

Not spam and not a true statement - you don't have to pay a cent to access it - just as
free as Chockstone or Supertopo, or Qurank, or a pile of climber community sites.
In the first issue interview with the Editor we have the following:

"How much will the magazine cost?

The magazine will always be free for the people as long as it is on the web. At some
point, if rthere is enough interest, I would like to get some advertising money that
would sustain the production of the magazine and allow it to expand to wherever it
needs to go.

The magazine will always be free? How do people ge the magazine? The magazine
is going to run off a web site ( where people can download the
magazine as a free PDF file. .... At some point I may look into printing a limited
number of copies, but that would depend on interest or unless someone wins the
lottery and donates a ton of money to the magazine."

Indeed there is advertising in the mag - which one assumes goes towards covering
production costs.

sorry keeper, I was poking fun at another thread, not this one directly

Ah, the stealthy,indirect lob! Must be an old Wallabies move perfected at Tri-nations.

I threw this one onto the table merely for the rovers in your mob who might be thinking of putting in some time at the crag after doing a bit of a volunteer stint at the upcoming
Vancouver Olympics as well as I recall the retro-discussion on the fate of CRUX - a similar Aussie initiative could be implemented either as a separate thing or attached to an existing site like this one. Would mean a few die-hards would have to spring for the time to do it all. Either those in high tax brackets or those at the other end who know no tax bracket and who scavenge the Pines or alley way behind Paddy Pallins. I haven't totally gone through the 200 pages of the two issues but it looks good and I like the liberal use of quality pics. First two issues are a bit weighty on bouldering but they had to use what was readily available to get the thing up and running.
