So I'm really focused on my climbing this year and was wondering which website would be better to look at while wasting time at work? Mountain Project seems like it will give me a better understanding of the mountains (duh) and it has the best pictures, but since I am rock climbing and not projecting any real mountains yet then maybe rockclimbing.com would be better for me.

Also, I live in the UK so UKClimbing is probably the best way to learn the style of the rocks over here. But those guys talk more about politics than climbing and I'm just not into that because climbing is so awesome and politics suck! I mean how can I get stronger at climbing by reading about the rising cost of public transportation, right?

So which site has helped you guys get psyched and learn more about how to climb hard? I am so focused on climbing now. I wish I could read them all! Maybe someday I will be able to live the dream like some of you guys and hit all of the sites every day! For now though, just one will have to do.

Thanks bros!

i dont know about "learning to climb hard", but climbingnarc.com certainly has a lot of inspiring stuff. thumbing through guidebooks and topos can be pretty motivating too Benjamin F

Haha. Actually we've had amazing weather for the past few weeks. Mid 50's and clear skies every day. The weather here really isn't that bad - Brits just like to complain.

Got a good day of climbing in on Monday and will be out again this weekend! Unfortunately I'm stuck at work right now and not so busy. Or maybe that is fortunate... either way, you're right about me being bored!

you'd be better off just daydreaming and then going climbing later. This site will just leave a distaste for humanity in your mouth. I go on these forums along with any other forum I've ever looked at just to read and see how stupid, crazy, arrogant, or interesting the topics are. Erboutitman

That it does Chris, but it's to far for this weekend. I was thinking more of something like this:

Nice.

I think I posted that Wasdale shot for me - just thinking about sitting in the hotel with a beer and some grub after climbing on Pillar, or Napes etc...
