Rock & Ice
Rock & Ice is a magazine published by Big Stone Publishing focusing on rock and ice climbing. The first issue came out in March, 1984. The first publisher was Neal Kaptain. George Bracksieck worked for him, beginning in January, 1984, and became his 50-50 partner in September. The magazine was bought out within the first year by George Bracksieck, who remained publisher and editor until midnight at the end of December 31, 1997. His company, Eldorado Publishing, sold Rock & Ice to North-South Publications, an investment group led by Dougald MacDonald. After a few years, it was sold to Big Stone. The magazine is published eight times a year. It was headquartered in Boulder, Colorado until 2002, when it moved to Carbondale, Colorado.
