Description

There's a whole world of climbing out there - literally!

Getting There

It doesn't matter where you're headed - you'll need either a credit card or frequent flier mileage. Purchase your ticket, do the research, and embark on your own international climbing adventure.

Organization

The International Area is sub-divided into Continents, then Countries, then crags. Some Countries are further sub-divided into states or provinces. According to my third grade teacher, islands are technically not part of any continent, but on Mountain Project, islands will be organized under the nearest Continent. So the Carribean Islands are located under "North America", while the British Isles & Iceland are located under "Europe". Pacific Islands such as New Zealand & Indonesia will be found under "Australia", whereas Japan will be under "Asia".

Middle Eastern countries such as Israel & Jordan are included in Asia. Turkey is included under Europe.

Canada seems like they could have their own section outside of "International." Just an idea... Jun 8, 2009

Looks like some of the international areas might need some re-org eventually (that is, hopefully, as more info gets added).. I mean as far as being in a Country/State/Area/Mountain/Crag format like the rest.

For example, 'Rio de Janeiro-Urca", a general area in the city of Rio, then state of Rio, then country of Brazil; shouldn't be under the same heading as the whole country of "Argentina".

Thanks much Dec 7, 2007
