For climbers, by climbers

Love this magazine. R&I covers everything and everybody in the climbing world - sport, trad, alpine, it's all there. Every article is written by a climber, and the language of each article reflects this. R&I has a tone and theme to all of its articles and stories, and it's that the life of a climber is nothing elegant or magnificent, but for a climber, there is nothing greater in life than to climb, period.

"The real heroes of climbing are people who climb until they drop, who hold climbing as the antidote for this slave-like way the world is going - this politically correct, pathetic, SUV-ridden, color-coded two-week holiday-and-back-to-work nonsense."
-Steve Haston, Issue 215

Goodbye bookshelf!!

For someone who lives the nomad life style, technology here really is a life saver!! I'm able to keep on hand and read any issue anywhere at any time. I'm normally not a fan of tech pad gadgets, but this is great! Friendly user interface, no glitches nor hiccups that I've noticed. Great deal!!

I didn't mind paying two dollars for a sample issue. That seems reasonable. However, I can't view the magazine. I can't create an account from the magazine. When I login with a created account it crashes. I see black screen. I don't see pages all the time. This app is buggy. I'm using the new iPad. Perhaps they didn't test it on the new OS.

As far as I can tell this magazine is not available on Zinio. This magazine is not available on Nook. This magazine is not available on Kindle.

After deleting the issue. I re-downloaded the issue. Man was that painful! Now I can read the magazine. I hope it was just a weird glitch.
