I worked out why it does this recently. Links are only recognised automatically if they start with "http:" not "https:".

If there's anybody around who can update the code for the forums, I suspect it would be a fairly trivial thing to fix. It would also be a useful enhancement since https is becoming the standard for a lot of web sites these days.

Any website worth its salt *should* automatically redirect from http to https. In this case it will, so:

Thanks very much for the TR: great info about all those crags. My climbing partner and I have been umming and ahhing about a European trip for a while, and given that we only climb moderate grades, it's very useful to know about famous crags that don't cater so well for the bumblies amongst us.

It's quite possible that "fame", when it comes to crags around the world, can sometimes be a consequence of magazine/media exposure. Obviously much of what is considered worthy of print often focusses on the cutting edge. It follows that much more exposure is given to crags with routes at the harder end of the spectrum. The crags that do receive attention from the media and also have amenable grades for the average climber may well be crowded or polished particularly in parts of Europe accesible to a much larger climbing community than exists here. If I was visiting Europe from Australia for the first time I might be tempted to explore some of the lesser known areas as well as making my pilgrimage to the honeypots. There are many gems to be found in all parts of the world beyond the obvious. Gerry's honesty about much of his experience is refreshing but don't be entirely put off by his apparent homesickness. I remember being utterly over the monotony of Arapiles and the Grampians and pining for pretty obscure and esoteric spots back in the UK for quite a few years. Useful as it is to take into account other peoples reports, they can be coloured in so many ways by so many factors that they are unlikely to indicate exactly what your own perspective might be. Embrace it all and enjoy the journey.

Here are some different perspectives:
