/ Is this a walking forum-or a climbing forum?
Click the hill talk button to filter out all the beanie topped senders.
Now I know I am thick, that went straight over my head !

Cheers, done that, will wait and see what happens.
This is so bizarre! I've tried posting the ukhillwalking url twice but, although I can see it in the message entry as soon as I post the message the link is translated to become ukclimbing. Let's try again with spaces

You can set your preferences to see or hide any category, to filter out stuff you aren't interested in. I'm sure as time goes on you'll find more and more hillwalkers visiting the site and who knows, maybe one day you'll try climbing :-)
I don't have any particular bits turned off, but I just don't read threads I'm obviously not interested in. There's a lot of good walking info on this site, and some very experienced contributors, and it doesn't have the all boy scouts together feel of some other walking sites. <cough>outdoorsmagic</cough>
There is a lot of crossover. Many of us are climbers but also hillwalkers. As said, the two sites are shared and the main hill forum is in Hilltalk. If you dont want to read the other stuff just unsubscribe. The Pub and Off Belay are worth subsubscribing to as well. Everyone should ubsubscribe to "Bouldering" by default. I don't even know what goes on in there. Everyone hanging about on their laptops with their t shirts off, looking in mirrors.
You may find that having a "profile" will help you get more helpful replies to your queries, and likewise you can infer quite a lot about others from their profiles.
I see this as a mountaineering site rather than walking or climbing - somewhere to expand your horizons into easy rock climbing, easy winter climbing, ski touring/mountaineering. Walking lies at the heart of all this (navigation, weather, fitness). Bouldering, indoor walls and the like I don't bother with.
So long as you are viewing the site on http://www.ukhillwalking.com/ forums/ rather than the UKC page - a lot of the climbing specific forums are not shown (bouldering, rock destinations, etc.)
If you post a UKH URL from UKC, the forum software 'helpfully' changes it to UKC for you!
Thanks, forgot about that.
