Sad But True
The Alpinist is gone. I don't consider myself an alpinist, nor an expert on magazines, rather an enthusiast in both. The Alpinist, like The Surfers Journal, is one of those rare magazines that went its own way, and put out a beautiful periodical. You wouldn't see tons of ads, lists for must see places, or the latest gear. You would see breath taking photos, and rich, vivid writing. Sad to see it go, but it had been a tough year. Truely it "appealed to a demographic with a penchant for living in pickup trucks"
I can relate, and that is rare these days.
