Climbing Site-Blog

The Climbing Blog is our mini-journal about Rock Climbing.

It...

- lets you know whenever any new web pages appear on Rock-Climbing-For-Life, telling you about a new tip or adventure.

- lets you know when we send out the Rock-Climbing-For-Life e-zine (in case you don't like to give your e-mail address, or if your ISP tends to over-filter causing you to miss an issue).

To subscribe to our Climbing site-blog (no e-mail necessary), right-click on the orange RSS button (see bottom buttons to the left) and then paste the URL into your RSS reader. Or click on the My Yahoo! button or My MSN or Add To Google button if you keep a personalized home page there.

Once you start, you will be amazed at what RSS can do.

Enjoy!
