Big Stone Publishing has officially launched a new publication focused on the indoor climbing community, Gym Climber. According to the publisher, "Gym Climber is a unique and free distribution magazine that aims to educate and inspire indoor climbers. The goal is to keep them healthy with injury advice, engaged with the climbing community through full-length features to keep them in the sport, training advice to get them stronger, light-hearted articles to remind us to have fun, and exposure to access and stewardship articles from non-profit partners like AAC and the Access Fund to ensure a smooth transition from gym to crag."


For gyms, this magazines seeks to offer an opportunity for climbers to get more involved in the sport, ideally moving them from hobbyists to lifetime climbers. The publisher hopes this effort will result in increased membership retention for indoor climbing facilities. It also serves as a platform to help spread good values throughout the climbing community. Outside of the educating and inspiring, the goal of the magazine is simple... grow the sport of climbing.


The first issue of Gym Climber is out now. Keep an eye out for the CWA's article about the 2018 Indoor Climbing Industry Report on page 26! To get free copies at your gym, email Mandi Carrera at
