Summit was founded in November, 1955 by Jene Crenshaw and Helen Kilness in Big Bear City, California. Under the leadership of Crenshaw and Kilness the magazine became very influential in US climbing circles and ran until 1989.
In 1990 a new owner David Swanson started Summit - The Mountain Journal, a quarterly publication with editor John Harlan III which ran until the summer of 1996.
