What’s In The Mags: December 2010

The holidays have me a bit behind on things, but here is a quick look at what was in the December issues of both Climbing and Urban Climber.  Climbing #291 has a mostly ice climbing focus while Urban Climber has a feature profile piece on Daniel Woods.

I don’t ice climb but I imagine the Skills Special on ice climbing would be quite helpful for those that are interested.  Otherwise the article about 7 attainable Layton Kor classics is a good place to find your next adventure.

    That Climbing magazine cover is nice, even better when it was the Gripped cover though.
