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.

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.
