Unless you’ve been in a bivy cave on Changabang for the past two years you know Olympic climbing begins next week. See schedule here. What you probably don’t know is that the Climbing and Gym Climber editors will be posting results as soon as they are known, and that we’ll follow those with expert analysis from leading climbing authorities including John Burgman and Alex Johnson. On the ground in Tokyo we’ve partnered with Yamamoto Hiroaki and Kimiko Ohata, editors for the Japanese climbing magazine Rock and Snow, to provide on-the-scene reports. The crew from Louder Than 11 will be there as well, feeding us photos.
Our extensive coverage will be posted on our special Olympic hub on climbing.com where you can already find over 40 Olympic-related stories, news including bios of all 40 Olympic climbers and commentary such as “Why Isn’t Alex Honnold In The Olympics?”
We don’t want you to miss a moment of our comprehensive coverage and expert analysis, but you will be locked out of some great content unless you join us with a Climbing membership, as some news and stories will be paywalled.
Right now, you can join the Climbing team for half off.
For just $2 a month you can get all of our Olympic coverage, plus a year of Climbing in print delivered to you house. Sign with us and we will also send you a print edition of our coffee-table edition of Ascent, a collection of climbing’s finest writing, art and photography. Published since 1967, Ascent is an original and worth the price by itself.
The time to join is now. This link takes you to the order page. You’ll see two options there. One option is for the Outside+ membership, for $8.25 a month, which gets you all the benefits of Climbing, plus benefits from Outside. The other option, the $2/month one, gets you unlimited Olympic coverage on climbing.com, plus the print magazine and Ascent.
