If your choice of where to go on holiday is partly driven by where the climbing is then rock-climbing-guides.com will expand your trip possibilities. Pick a country, pick a crag, find a cheap flight.

Guide publishers such as Rockfax, the BMC, and the Climber's Club are well represented, as are the more obscure publishers such as the Mountain Club Subra who publish the Montenegro guide. rock-climbing-guides.com is a good site to visit and day dream, just try not to drool into your keyboard.

Inspiration comes in the form of around 260 biographies and narratives. Great names of the mountaineering and climbing world - Whillans, Bonnington, Menlove, Messner - and just about everyone else is there. Reading about the determination of others, their trials and tribulations, and their commitment to their sport can inspire all of us.

For new climbers and the experienced there is plenty of opportunity to tune up your technique. The Techniques section has some 100 books covering everything rock as well as other subjects of interest to the climber. Need some advice on Big Wall climbing before that trip to Yosemite? Often can't find the crag and need some navigation skills? Need a basic beginner's climbing primer, or are you looking to improve on mixed rock and ice? There's plenty to choose from, written by experts in their area.

Its not all hard work for the upwardly mobile. There's a good DVD selection for the evening chill time and even some rock fiction, which may appeal after a day of rock friction.

Overall, rock-climbing-guides.com is a complete site of definite interest to the rock athlete or the rock climbing hobbyist.
