The series, titled Relocate, gives an insider's view on what it is like to live and climb in an area of the UK. Areas covered so far include Sheffield, Fort William, North Wales, London, Devon, Lake District and more.
Concentrating as much on the people and character of the areas as the climbing, the articles give information on employment opportunities, house prices and of course, access to the rock and to climbing partners.
If you're thinking about moving somewhere else in the UK, or if you'd just like to know what it's like living in Fort William or Devon, these articles could be for you.
In other parts of the site, Kevin Avery is working hard on Destination Articles and has several in the pipeline. The intention is to present the most important climbing areas in the World so that you have all the information at hand to plan a trip. He does need help and if you would like to write a Destination Article, do get in touch with Kevin: (email@example.com).
