Citing past racial insensitivity Duane Raleigh resigns from R&I


Recommended Posts



“We can’t accept any level of racism or discrimination in our community. We are still stuck in the ‘good ole boys club’ of climbing, and it’s past time for a change.”

So you know that my words are backed with action, I am stepping aside as publisher and editor in chief and empowering the new internal leadership with the tools they need to make the climbing community a better, more inclusive place for everyone. I urge you to support these efforts, because at this critical time in our country we need everyone pulling in the same direction and on the right side of history.

To the climbing community, I sincerely apologize, and am honored to have the opportunity to help affect change.



Duane Raleigh
