'Embracing The Void', Vertical Magazine

Recommended Posts

The current issue of Vertical magazine (available in Europe in English, French, German and Italian) has a 14 page feature on BASEclimbing with contributions from Jerome Blanc-Gras, Leo Houlding, Glenn Singleman and Valery Rozov. Clearly with these contributors the feature is very positive (actually the most positive I think you could get off the shop shelf). It is in the the dec 06 - jan 07 issue (English edition #3) so I don't think it'll be on the shelves much longer. There's a good shot of an exit from Mt Thor, Baffin on the cover. If i can get access to a scanner I'll put it up - I couldn't find anything from a websearch.
