The American Alpine Club is pleased to announce that The American Alpine Journal—the world’s journal of record for notable climbs—is once again available to all. 

In July the Club announced that the Journal in printed form would be available only to AAC Members. More than 100 climbers commented on the policy. The remarks ranged from supportive to irate, but every note reinforced the importance of the AAJ to climbers around the world. As a response to this community outpouring, the AAC has made the Journal available to everyone.

For those interested in the AAJ: we encourage you to become members of The American Alpine Club, which produces and pays for the Journal. New Members will receive the 2011 AAJ immediately and, next summer, the 2012 AAJ and 2012 Accidents in North American Mountaineering. Members also get access to other AAC perks, like $10,000 of rescue benefits and numerous discounts on climbing gear, gyms, and lodging. Join Here:;utm_campaign=forums

For those who do not wish to join the AAC, the print copy of the AAJ is for sale. The 2011 Journal costs $45 and is available only through the AAC Online Store. Members get a 20% discount in the online store and can buy additional copies of the Journal for $36.;utm_campaign=forums

Climbers may continue to access the AAJ for free digitally at these two pages:;utm_campaign=forums
