This is the first-ever all-digital “country edition” from the archives of the AAJ. As such, there are a few rough edges in the styling of these PDF pages, which must be considered a “beta” edition. But the content is all here and if you’re considering a climbing trip to these countries, this is a must-have edition.
The feature articles are those stories that made the front of the AAJ. These are climbs that the editors considered among the world’s most significant ascents of the year. These are listed below. But the heart of this edition is all the shorter reports from every range in these countries.
