Places to climb

View All locations visited in a larger map

Following on from the previous post, here's a rough compilation of everywhere I've climbed worldwide as much as I can remember - there's a few other smaller, more esoteric spots that I can't remember names of. I honestly cannot recommend enough going to see different places to climb and travel. Not only is the rock different and amazing in every location, but the more exotic destinations are a true life experience! If you ever want to appreciate how easy we have it here in Europe, make sure to get to Asia and spend some time off the beaten track..........

The point of this list is that if anyone wants info, contact me and I'll help you out with any info I can get.....
