in my opinion the BEST climbing website (in terms of info that doesn't exist in a lot of books or
elsewhere) on the web is andy kirkpatrics website

First off, if theres any doubts on his credentials; go to >words then to "when hell freezes over" Now That
is climbing, then look at the technique and gear articles....

Sorry to the OP this is not a site with begginers info, but everyone else, it is great!

Yeah that is a very good site. After reading a few of those stories you begin to think Andy K is a good example of a mad pom too.

some of neal gresham's training articles, the rest of their site it i'm not really into.

thats one sweet ass site!!! (psychovertical)

(quick input: in the photographer for morons article he says to put the camera in your jacket close to your skin/base layer etc...its true that this will help with battery life, but the sudden changes in temperature caused by pulling your camera in&out of the jacket will cause condensation in the lens...for slrs ive found external battery packs are the best, but the vertical-grip style battery compartments work well too....for basic p&s cameras just carry your spare batts in the jacket or put one of those heat strips against the battery compartment)

yeah the neil gresham one is very good, lots of sheffield training secrets shared on that one!

Oh, regards to the Andy K site, Mad pom, Yes, but for anyone getting into alpine, his gear advice is, for
my money, spot on. I highly recomend his softshell articles (read all the ranting) it really cuts through
todays marketing bullshit. (like if its got a membrane it is NOT a softshell, know what i mean!)
