The founders of the magazine aimed to promote and share the rising popularity of mountaineering in the 1940s in the US. The magazine's intent has always been to encourage people to master mountaineering skills, discuss routes, share climbing experiences, and cultivate a sense of community among Northwest climbers.

Each issue of the magazine included articles on mountaineering routes, gear reviews, interviews with prominent climbers, and news about upcoming climbing events. Moreover, it contributed to promoting outdoor activities in the Pacific Northwest region by featuring articles on hiking and camping, book reviews, photography, and artwork.

Northwest Mountaineering Journal had many contributors with experiences ranging from enthusiasts to leading climbers and mountaineers, all providing their expertise. Readers could expect a high level of professional writing and reliable information on all topics related to climbing and hiking in the Pacific Northwest.

The magazine continued to publish until 1986 but then ceased edition due to financial constraints. However, it remains a significant part of the history of mountaineering and outdoor recreation in the Pacific Northwest for over thirty-eight years.{{Categories}}
