In partnership with Climbing Magazine, Climbing Tech Tips, and the Access Fund, we're happy to release the School of Rock. Our goal is to gather high-quality educational articles that range from absolute basics to advanced techniques and get it in front of as many people as possible.

We will continue to add new content, from current partners and possibly new ones. For now, users cannot directly contribute articles (but if you have a bunch you want to share, please contact us).

Please enjoy; we hope you learn something useful! And as always, feedback is welcome!

Are there any plans to delete articles/videos which receive low ratings in favor of replacing them with something better? I'm already noticing some really quality content, and also some stuff that is bound to average 1-2 star ratings. It would be a shame if this great resource was tarnished by anything less than 4 stars.

Indeed, that's why we have star ratings! Climbing Tech Tips is working on 100+ new videos, and a couple will replace some that might be considered "drafts".

An attempt to post a comment to one of the articles resulted in the message

"You have attempted to create an incompatible child type."

Maybe you really don't want comments on the articles, but attacking a person's parenting skills seems kinda harsh.
