• In the Hot Flashes report on Kevin Jorgeson making the first ascent of theBishop highball The Beautiful and Damned in No. 257, Climbing misspelledhis last name as "Jorgenson." Climbing apologizes for the error.

• In No. 256, the article “10 Things You Didn’t Know About… Climbing Covers” contained two inaccuracies. First, the photographer with the most covers is not Jim Thornburg, but is in fact Greg Epperson, who has landed the cover 16 times (Nos. 103, 104, 114, 118, 121, 123, 132, 136, 141, 144, 153, 162, 176, 177, 180, and 212) and has also featured his work on the cover of four Gear Guides, for a total of 20 appearances. Second, the cover shot of Alex Huber on No. 154 was taken by Heinz Zak, not Kevin Worrall; Worrall’s shot appeared in the table of contents for that issue. Also, another two-time cover star we omitted is John Bachar, who first appeared free soloing Outer Limits (5.10) on the cover of No. 84, and again appeared ropeless on The Gift (5.12c/d), at Red Rock, Nevada, on the cover of 192.

• On p.51 of No. 255, the Honorable Mention for the 2006 North American Alpine Golden Piton Award should have gone to Colin Haley and Jed Brown, not Jeb Hoffman.

• In No. 254, the Classic Climb, Walk on the Wild Side, was incorrectly noted as having about 10 bolts per pitch and standing 600 feet. The correct bolt count, according to the guidebook author Randy Vogle, is six bolts on P1, three on P2, and two on P3, with a total length of roughly 265 feet.
