Off Belay Magazine, 1972-1981

I have a complete set of Off Belay magazines, thanks to John Meulemans, who gave me his collection. Another complete set is available at the Mountaineers Library. I reviewed every issue published during the period covered by the following table. If no issue is listed for a particular month, it means I found nothing noteworthy in it. If the Notes column says "reference," then the contents may be useful for future reference, but I haven't made detailed notes on them for now. The ID column has links to my review notes.
