Climbing Magazine announced the return of Jonathan Thesenga as Editor In Chief. After a three-year hiatus, Thesenga returns to the helm of Climbing, injecting the magazine with the same high dose of unbridled enthusiasm and unrefined humor he has been delivering since first writing for Climbing seven years ago.

Thesenga, an accomplished all-around climber for nearly 20 years, is driven to uphold Climbing's role as the most inclusive, widely distributed vertical publication in the world, while also moving the magazine in a more progressive direction in terms of content and design.

Matt Samet, a former Associate Editor at Climbing Magazine, has also returned to the fold, assuming the role of Senior Editor. One of the industry's most talented writers, editors, and climbers, Samet is another impressive addition to the staff of Climbing.
