Rock and Ice Magzine
Rock and Ice is a magazine devoted to rock and ice climbing and mountaineering. It was first published in 1985 out of Boulder, Colorado, and in 2002 relocated to Carbondale, Colorado, under new ownership by Big Stone Publishing. Big Stone Publishing continues to operate out of Carbondale and also publishes Trail Runner magazine. It employs a staff of 14, with additional interns on a rotating basis for both magazines.
Each issue of Rock and Ice contains approximately four features, with over a dozen standing departments including the analytical Accident Prevention, various interviews in the Snapshot (previously called Spotlight) and What I've Learned departments, Training and Medicine departments, gear reviews, a section of coping and survival stories called My Epic, personal and humor columns, and photo galleries. Features range from adventure stories to destination pieces, human-interest profiles, topical and historical pieces, and polemics.
The magazine maintains the world's top climbing website, rockandice.com, with continual news and video updates, and a weekly e-mail newsletter [click here to sign-up]. Another weekly e-blast is the popular Friday item called Weekend Whipper, which shows climbing falls and gives commentary or explanation.
The magazine is available in print or digital editions worldwide.
