ELITISM?

Climbing - - BASECAMP -

I am try­ing to de­cide if I should re­new. I have been a sub­scriber since the 1970s, but I am see­ing a dis­heart­en­ing trend. I just got my lat­est is­sue and it is ba­si­cally worth­less. Most of the mag is about 5.14-and-up climbs, which I will never do. Most of the ge­o­graphic ar­eas are places like China, where I will never go. Your mag is fall­ing into the same trap I have seen other mags and even climb­ing gyms fall into. You are cater­ing to the elite 1 per­cent. I would like the ar­ti­cle dis­tri­bu­tion to match the reader de­mo­graphic. If 90 per­cent of your sub­scribers climb 5.9, then the mag should re­flect that. DAVID ALEXAN­DER, VIA EMAIL
