The cover of Mountain Gazette 197 features professional climber Tommy Caldwell on the Dawn Wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. The photograph was captured by Jimmy Chin, who makes his Mountain Gazette debut with a ten-page gallery of stunning images.
Welcome, Jimmy Chin
We are super pleased to welcome Jimmy Chin as a contributor to Mountain Gazette. Also inside is the return of John Fayhee with a decades long look at the writer’s unique relationship with a con-man, a retrospective on the work of architect Henrik Bull, a wild, unforgettable river trip in Mexico, a season long piece about the bighorn sheep vs. backcountry skier debate in Jackson, urban climbing, a look back at the outdoor culture of Ukraine before the Russian invasion, and much more of the writing and photography you’ve come to expect from MG. Plus! It’s all wrapped up in an extra thick issue that's 140 pages and includes a tear-out poster.
We couldn't do this without you. Thank you.
