Product Description

A truly inspiring magazine with amazing picture, articles, and up-to-date news about what is happening in the climbing world.

Rock and Ice is the actually the only climber-owned and operated climbing magazine! Since 1984, Rock and Ice has been publishing the most authentic, inspiring and high-quality features and photos. Rock and Ice aims to show the awesomeness of the sport and illuminate the climbing experience. Along with a long list of award-winning writers, a new large-format size showcases pictures that capture the scope and magnitude of the walls we climb better than any other climbing magazine.


Rock and Ice is renowned for publishing the work of top-notch shooters like Tim Kemple, Cory Rich, Jim Thornburg, Greg Epperson and award-winning writers like John Long and Pete Takeda.

Nine times a year, Rock and Ice is delivered to climbers' doorsteps and specialty retail stores around the world. Our approach to grassroots publishing minimizes our environmental footprint. Rock and Ice has the highest newsstand sell-through of any magazine in our category, and, due to efficiencies in printing, has less paper waste. The result: fewer discarded issues and less paper overall ends up in the landfill.

Rock and Ice is also published digitally, reducing paper usage, while extending the magazine's global reach.

Rock and Ice is owned by Big Stone Publishing, established in Carbondale, Colorado, in 2002.

Alan EllisMy favorite...

Voted 5/5

For monthly climbing rags, R&I is my favorite. I like the fact that they always have an alpine article and stuff in there for moderate climbers like me. I'm tired of other mags that have nothing but stuff about 5.15 climbers and routes, stuff that the average climber cannot do. R&I isn't like that at all. It writes for the average, every day climber which most of us can relate to. The gear reviews are genuine because they do not hesitate to tell it like it is. Highly recommended.
