/ Climb Magazine - What a turn arround?
Has anyone else noticed the vast improvement in Climb magazine since Ian P took over?
I had stopped buying it because I found the format tired. Picked it up again the other day and what a turn arround, the quality of the photo's and writting has greatly improved. You can tell it gets it influences more from the likes of Alpinist now.
As with any magazine it will always suffer with bringing news that most readers will probably have heard but the articles compensate for that in my opinion.
What do other people who have read it think?
Hardly ever buy climbing mags but I was tempted by the last ones I saw.
Looks like it's been dragged into the 21st Century at last.
I think it's better too. I liked it before, when it was trying the matte format and being more generous with pictures and all, but it seems to feel more grown-up since the editorial change.
