As we predicted, several editors from Climbing have jumped ship to join new owner Duane Raleigh at his new publishing venture that includes Rock & Ice and Trail Runner magazines. Tyler Stableford joins up as editor of Rock & Ice. Stableford served as Photo & Equipment Editor of Climbing for the past five years. Mike Benge joins the company as editor of Trail Runner. An avid trail runner in the Colorado Rockies, Benge served as editor of Climbing, where he worked for the last 15 years. SNEWS® View: It is expected that Climbing mag's longtime senior editor, Alison Osius, will also jump ship soon. Well, we know they were making more money at Climbing, but the exodus makes sense to us. What editor wouldn't want an opportunity to be part of wholesale change and want an opportunity to make a mark or place their stamp on a new or updated product? Sure they're making less money with their new gig, but money ain't everything.
