My Personal Favorites...
|Guillaume & Jennifer Dargaud's website An amazing collection of photos and stories from all over the globe. I would call this the best personal climbing site on the net. In addition to climbing, this site has excellent sections on Antarctica and Photography. I am fortunate to call these two friends and to have climbed with them on many occasions. Their tick list reads like most people's wish list. :)|
|climbingboulder.com The best beta resource on the net, bar none! Complete with sister sites to Moab, Tucson, SLC, J-Tree, Red Rocks, Devil's Lake, The Black Hills, and the Bay Area. If you can contribute, please do.|
|rec.climbing The original online climbing forum. Although the threads sometimes provide interesting reading, I include this because all past posts are on record and you can searchable. Check out the Advanced Search options. This is quite a resource as most things have been discussed there, at one time or another, in the last 15 years.|
Eric and Lucie's Bus Trip - This terriffic site has a ton of wonderful pictures and trip reports from places these two have visited. They have been quite a few increadible places too! Check out their climb list. You will find pictures and beta on routes that you can't find anywhere else on the net. This is quite a resource and a great way to lose hours out of your day. :)
George Bell's Site - I like any website with a tribute to Long's Peak! George also offers the best page on the Cirque of the Unclimbables that exists. Don't miss the Slide Shows.
John Middendorf's Big Wall Page - Advice and stories from one of the best.
Bill Wright's Climbing Page - Bill's site is packed with information about speed climbing records. Not to mention loads of trip reports.
Tradgirl.com - A web-based distilment of the technical advice from rec.climbing. This is an excellent resource for technical climbing questions and for novice climbers.
American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA) - Thank you!
The Access Fund - Help Out!
North American Classics - An inspiring CD of the 50 Classic Climbs + 50 new classic climbs. Each climb has lots of hi res pictures. You can spend a lot of time looking at this CD.
Fish Products - I included this page in because there are some fun (and sketchy) tales in the Bedtime Stories section.
The Climbing Dictionary - Learn the lingo.
