Devil’s Tower: Contested Sacred Land

For my final project, I really wanted to dig deeper into the conflict surrounding climbing on Devils Tower. It cumulated in an article that will hopefully be published in Climbing Magazine. In the mean time, I designed my work so that it looked like a spread in this type of publication. I really wanted to appeal to climbers on an ethical and access level.

Here’s my article:     Page 1     Page 2     Page 3

Here are some of the links that I used while researching. The forums are particularly interesting in my opinion.
