The Climbing Business Journal was started in 2013 and since that time we’ve been proudly bringing you the best original news and analysis about the business of climbing. Our small independent team has created features like, the industry’s most popular jobs listing; the meticulously researched and comprehensive climbing facilities map; and of course the seminal Grip List. And recently we launched our first annual State of the Industry Survey which was well received and has already helped gym owners and operators expand their business.
All of this original research is produced by a small team headquartered in Reno, Nevada with help from our writers scattered all over the country. We work hard to bring you information that can’t be found anywhere else on line or in print. We do all of this without you being forced to purchase a subscription.
We do get financial help from a handful of advertisers, but every now and then we need to come to you, our readers, to ask you to support these efforts. When you become a member of CBJ you’re money will go towards keeping the virtual lights on, paying our actual writers and researchers, and in short allowing us the ability to keep bringing you the content you’ve come to rely on every week. If you’ve helped us out in the past, please consider renewing your membership today.
You can become a member of CBJ by joining the member circle that is right for you. After joining our community you’ll feel good about reading CBJ every week knowing that without your financial support CBJ would not be possible.
