New climbing blogs – The Climbing

by Tom Markiewicz on June 22, 2006

I’m finally starting to see an increase in the number of climbing blogs being created. For a while, there was a surprising few climbing blogs while there were many web sites dedicated to climbing. This post is the first in a series that will highlight new climbing blogs. If you have a blog dedicated to climbing, let me know about it. Contact me with as much info as you care to leave including what topics you cover, your climbing background, and what climbing areas you frequent.

The first is a blog titled The Climbing. This brand new (June 2006) climbing focused blog already has some good product reviews (Petzl Zipka, Arcâ??teryx Vapor Harness) and promises to have a heavy focus on gear.

    I sort of have a climbing blog…at least it was from August 2004-September 2005 as I roadtripped around North America. Now I have parked myself in Utah permanently and I still post a lot of climbing pics, etc, on it, but I also post stuff for my family too. Email me and I’ll give you the blog address if your interested.

    Hi Tom,

    I’m looking foward to this feature as I looked around quite extensively when I first started mine, yours was the only one I found.
    Mines more about cars than climbing just at the moment though :-(

  • Tom


    You didn’t leave an email address, but just post the URL of your blog and I’ll check it out.

  • Tom

    Thanks ShadyCraig. I’ve also found some blogs I’ll be highlighting that aren’t necessarily new, but just flew under everyone’s radar.

  • Brian

    This isn’t a blog but the odd time, such as now, there is a nice article on climbing written on this journalists website
    currently the front page leads with underwater climbing in Amsterdam, the netherlands

    Hey Tom. I like your new site. Some interesting posts, and great links. I have a blog which i put up a few weeks ago. It is focusing on my upcoming trip to New Zealand, where I’ll be doing alot of climbing and posting pictures, but I’ve already posted a couple of trip reports and some photos.
    check it out, if you like.

  • Max W

    Hey Tom, this is Max again. I started a new blog a couple of weeks ago dedicated to gear reviews. I am going to be posting alot over the next week to generate some traffic. Check it out!

    p.s. are you on vacation or something?

    Hello Tom,
    I’ve been enjoying reading over your many posts.
    You have great adventures!
    Do you think a post area on ‘giving back’ to the wilderness and climbing areas would be well received?
    My blogs are at under:
    DSD Summit Stones or
    Summit Stones & Adventure Musings By DSD
    I will definitely visit here again,

  • B.R.

    Found your blog while on search for dsd. I’ll bookmark yours now too as it has great climbing links for me.

  • Barb

    I am trying to reach a Donald Matthew Bequette — He mountian climbs by hobby — Anyone know where he went after he left Colorado?

  • Tom

    Max, no just been doing a lot of climbing lately. I know I need to be posting more…

    DSD, yes, absolutely those types of posts would be well received.

    This might seem like a strange request, but I’m looking for a poster of the Tetons from around 1984. While an employee for Rock Resorts in the Tetons, I took a mountain climbing class with Exum Mountaineering. I also purchased a poster of the Tetons, and it said something like Exum Mountaineering, Jackson Hole Wyoming. The poster has been ruined. I called Exum Mountaineering, and they remembered the poster, but they no longer produce them. Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase one? My e-mail address is

    Hey Allclimbing,

    I have a climbing blog and a climbing site that are together. The site is and that the blog is located at

    The site focuses on providing tons of free rock climbing information (articles, videos, photos, news, free ebooks, and more) for rock climbers and a chance to share your content. You can share your climbing videos, photos, stories, you can ask the climbing expert questions, submit news, and whoever contributes the best content wins a $75 shopping spree to an outdoor company.

    My blog focuses on Climbing News and reviews.



  • Andrew

  • falling dreams

    I have read a few just right stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how a lot attempt you set to make the sort of wonderful informative website.

  • Cecille Thane

    I have been told to improve your creative writing you need to read a lot.. What great classic books, can I read (from any period or country) that will improve my writing.. Genre is unimportant, though I am not writing for children.. I said classic, I read science fiction/recent literature as entertainment. But to improve the quality of writing, read the masters. Can any one write a list of great writers to read..

  • Lawana Kaleel

    I used to be suggested this website by means of my cousin. I am not sure whether this submit is written via him as nobody else understand such targeted approximately my difficulty. You are wonderful! Thanks!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

  • Todd Banks

    You should take part in a contest for one of the most useful blogs online. I’m going to highly recommend this web site!
