Hi guys,
I'd like to start a website wich lists cool climbing spots for holidays as we love to travel and climb. Our last holiday without climbing was actually 3 years ago. ;-)

To make our website as interesting as possible for the readers, we'd like to know a bit about how you plan your holidays and what is important for you. You can find the survey here: goo.gl/forms/oRxaFZ097Q9ZAJnl2

Many thanks!

How is that any different than any of the area listings on this site?
What makes a climbing spot holiday specific as compared to any other time?
IOW, the point of this entirely eludes me.

Edit to add: I took your survey. As is typical of these sorts of surveys, some of the questions are worded oddly and a few choices are pretty strange. EG: the question asking about degree of importance of various attributes of a climbing destination includes the attribute of "arrival"? Huh?

You missed road biking and skiing and other compatible sports. SMarsh

I didn't take the survey, but I try to avoid destination climbing areas during holidays and weekends. I have the luxury of climbing midweek. My goal is to avoid the crowds! FrankPS

What about the climbers that go "holiday climbing" for more than 4 weeks out of the year? Dylan Alvarez

I tried.... But I had to close the survey and bail. It was not easy to understand, I'm sorry OP, but it's poorly worded and I had a headache 5 seconds into it. Russ Keane

Hi guys,
thanks for taking part, if you did!

Sorry for the wording, I am not an english native speaker. :-/

We don't want to know that, we would be too jealous. ;-)

I think she's using British definition of "holidays", i.e. vacation/break, not a common US use of the word which means "a day off work in commemoration or celebration of an event." doligo
