The Rock & Wall is a community-driven project aiming to build the ultimate climbing resource. Everyone can get bogged down with the details of planning an awesome trip; finding the best climber-friendly accommodation, the best climbing locations for the season or the cheapest place to get healthy food. This is where the Rock & Wall comes in - a comprehensive climbers' hub where you can find rock climbing and bouldering locations, indoor climbing gyms, and accommodation anywhere in the world. It will also list helpful local businesses, events and professionals that can make your climbing experiences that little bit better. This is where you will find all your needs met in one place.
Climbing is a lifetime sport that provides a sense of meaning to many people’s lives. Because we experience the great outdoors and hold other people’s lives in our hands, climbers are inherently passionate about helping others and the environment. Often local climbing communities and centres are run by enthusiastic individuals who have no corporate or governmental funding, who could really benefit from extra exposure to a global climbing community. Furthermore, a lot of support is needed to sustain the quality and safety of the crags so that they can last for generations to come. Our fundraising projects and blog aim to provide this exposure and help get more people involved in the communities and clubs that make our sport so great.
The Rock and Wall has the potential to become the leading online resource for climbers, climbing gyms, outdoor enthusiasts, and anyone looking for information on this up-and-coming sport. I will continue to both use and share the Rock and Wall as my go-to for anything in the climbing world
