App Description

From the Land Down Under comes Australasia’s premier climbing publication, Vertical Life - a digital explosion of beautiful colours and words all about the sport we love. Built by climbers for climbers, Vertical Life primarily focuses on the Australian, New Zealand and rapidly developing Asian climbing scenes - but it also features destinations and climbers from all over the planet. From the dusty desert crags of Flinders Ranges to the damp valleys of the Darran Mountains and the hazy, humid limestone towers of Yangshou, Vertical Life has it covered.
A quarterly magazine, Vertical Life is a digital-first publication - not simply a pdf of the printed magazine - and each issue features a host of links to other digital resources: topos, video and extended material. The magazine covers all aspects of climbing, from alpine sufferfests and trad climbing to sport climbing, bouldering - and everything in between. Each issue contains stunning photography and funny, entertaining writing all packaged together with some superb design.
Vertical Life features a wealth of climbing knowledge and experience, including its two Australian editors, Simon Madden and Ross Taylor, New Zealand editor Tom Hoyle, training guru and China correspondent, Duncan Brown, and regular columnists, history writer Michael Meadows, Steve Kelly and Andrea Hah, as well as a huge number of talented regular contributors.
And if you are hungry for more than a quarterly dose of Australasian climbing action, and want to see regular news, blogs, video and images visit
