THE CLIMBING TRAVEL GUIDE
A guidebook promoting sustainable travel by featuring the 50 best off-the-beaten track climbing destinations in the world
Rock-climbing is seeing a boom in popularity. More and more people are heading on outdoor climbing trips, and as a result, some of the famous crags are suffering from overcrowding. But there are thousands of equally beautiful climbing areas that just don’t get the same visibility. And climbing there can make a real difference to the local community.
The Climbing Travel Guide aims to give visibility to these off-the-beaten-track climbing areas. We believe that the outdoor community can pioneer a new way of traveling responsibly: away from the crowds, immersed in nature, connecting with and reinvesting in the local community, making friends for life. More than just a regular coffee table book, the Climbing Travel Guide gives you the tools to do just this.

Why are we making this book?
We believe there is nothing more awesome than going somewhere new, getting in touch with the local climbing community, and discovering the place while participating in your favorite sport. The Climbing Travel Guide is the first book to comprehensively document the 50 best off-the-beaten-track climbing destinations in the world and their local communities.
