"Dhaulagirideon written by Michael Charles Tobias Is the first publication of the International Mountaineering Arts Journal. The printing is a private edition limited to a bare 100 copies, 15 of which are signed and numbered. The book itself represents a new invention and provides the partial circumspections for a group of artists and climbers who have helped make its publication possible. The primary group involved in its practices and ideologies go by the name of Tree Community.
With a vocabulary of categories and methodologies, all signaling exertions into the realms of physiolatry (the love of nature) and the poetic output of the Community and its press, IMAJ, is desirous of maintaining a commitment to undeveloped contrasts and integrations in the arts with the basis in mountaineering." from the introduction
