In the January 2015 issue
With a new year on the horizon we thought it was a great time to launch the new look Climber magazine – we have spent the recent months revamping Climber magazine to make it a fresher and more modern design. From a more easily read typeface to a visually pleasing look amongst the changes plus a new Climber logo. And all with the same quality content and regulars.
