last week i was browsing in the local thrift store and to my surprise/joy/ etc., someone dropped off over 20 years of climbing and rock and ice mags. Not a complete collection by any means, but quite a few. I'm not a big reader of the mags, but this was a find.

Any classic rock and ice or climbing issues stand out to anyone?

I only had some pocket change on me, so i could only depart with a stack of 12 (2 bucks). I'm going back tomorrow when the store reopens to buy the rest.

The Rickie Ishoy "bikini cover" issue of Climbing will be worth $1000 someday.

The older the better. Climbing magazines from 89 to 94 were really good, with great trips, good writing and helpful advice. Previous to that they were thinner, but interesting to see the oddball gear for sale and korean freinds for 10-12 bucks a shot

Whatever happened to climbing rags. They used to be such a joy to read.

not related to your question, but, i met the founder of Rock and Ice on my way back from Banff a couple of months ago. i just climbed with him recently. great guy. seems like he did pretty well from it and is living the life now.

I came across a stack of old "SUMMIT" magazines, in a bookstore, I grabbed them but haven't really looked at them that closely yet. The oldest one I noticed so far was: Volume 10, #10, December 1964

Check out some of these AD's







And and interesting article (for 1964) on global warming, "Snow Creek - Disappearing Glacier"

A friend has asked me to sell some of his vintage gear. Included is a complete set of CLIMBING mag. Back to issue #1 (If I was hearing him correctly). Anybody want to buy the set?
