How to contribute

 

At the Rock & Wall we all get involved on a voluntary basis. There is no monetary incentive; we just do it because we love climbing, its culture and its people. Our vision to build the ultimate climbing resource will take more than just a handful of dedicated members, but the entire community can really help make our vision become a reality. You don’t have to be an experienced climber to get involved, just an interest in helping to create something beautiful. Contributing does not have to take hours either; after all, many hands make light work. We know we are not alone in our passions for the sport, so come and share yours with the world.

 

The Blog

Have you recently been on an epic trip? Started a climbing-related charity that needs some exposure? Know a special someone who should have more recognition as a great climber? Used a piece of gear that you think everyone should get? Well we want to hear from you! The most important aspect of any community is the ability to share each other’s stories and ideas.

If you want to contribute to the Rock & Wall blog just write up an article and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You can literally write about anything climbing related and send it in for us to read and publish. Try to keep your post under 1000 words and add photos if you can.

For gear reviews, please ensure you add all of the specifications and at least one pro and one con that you think the equipment has. Remember the gear review is also your story, so tell us how you are using it and why you have felt compelled to tell us about it. Please keep gear reviews under 500 words (not including specifications or pros and cons).

Unfortunately we cannot promise that every piece will be published, but we will always read it and keep in contact. We want to make sure that the quality of the blog as high as possible and also try not to repeat content too much.

 

Climbing Spots

The main aim of the Rock & Wall is to collate all of the crags in the world onto one map. Gone will be the days where climbers had to spend time searching for a place to climb nearby – it will all be here. Bringing all of this information together is a massive task and we cannot do it alone. If you have a crag near you that you want to tell us about please get in contact by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We will then liaise with you and make sure we get all the correct information for the crag. Alternatively, sign up and use the submission forms to submit the information.

It isn’t just crag information we are trying to collate; accommodation, shops, official events and climbing centres are all very important too. Get in touch and inform the world about your local area!
