Climb Magazine Now Online

© CLIMB magazine
Climb magazine, edited by Neil Pearsons and published by Greenshires is now online with a strong web presence. Climber magazine, Climb's rival unveiled their website, www.climber.co.uk earlier this year.

What is special about the Climb website is the archival material that they are making available. You can download, after registration, articles and gear reviews from back issues of Climb magazine and the two magazines, On The Edge and High, that spawned Climb. As the site develops, Karen Dench of Greenshires who has been heavily involved with the new site launch told us that they may consider putting the best of the old Crags magazine online. Problem is that, Crags, started by Geoff Birtles, which ran to 30+ issues in the late 70's and early 80's, wasn't digital and will have to be scanned.

The "register as new user" didn't work at first (don't try ticking the "copy for delivery information" as I can't get this to work), then when I tried to send them feedback to inform them of this, that form wanted full address, phone number etc. I quite object to having that as required fields for a bloody feedback form. Its completely unnecessary and just looks like an attempt to gather consumer info to flog, even if they have no intention of doing that at all. There can't be many people who have used the internet for some time and haven't got on some annoying email list that they then can't get off. It's not away to build relations with customers/potential customers. The rest of the site is good though, with lots of free stuff as PDFs which makes it excellent. Better than what you can get on Rock and Ice and Climbing. I hope it helps rather than hits sales.

How odd. To read the articles you need to register. To register you need to supply your name and address. I can't think of any other website that requires these details simply to read the content. I'm not keen on giving my name & address for no good reason.

You could always e-mail the editor with your concerns: neilp@climbmagazine.com

You don't need to register to read the BMC's Summit magazine. See here http://www.thebmc.co.uk/Category.aspx?category=16 Is that a plus point or does it make no difference?

Definitely a plus point. Even if Climb/Greenshires would never dream of selling its info to someone else (but how secure is their data storage from thieves?) why do they need my telephone number? To a certain extent, that's private information.
