Steve & Judy's Climbing Links Page

Last update: 3. August 2020 - link from America

Our general links page was all getting a bit unmanageable, so we've moved all the climbing related ones to here. One day we'll even try to sort them properly.

They are links we've found useful, interesting, or just weird...     we can't test the URLs every day, so please advise us of any broken ones

Don't forget that these links take you off our website, so we are not responsible for their content. Please use your browser's "Back" button to return here.

Quickies to save (me) scrolling : ; Rockfax ; British Mountaineering Council
