The Climb-On Maps Story
Rick and Stefani are avid rock climbers who love to travel, explore, and climb. We got incredibly frustrated when our precious weekend or climbing vacation time was consumed by attempting to find climbs, rather than climbing. We also didn't appreciate it when the walk-off for a climb resulted in an epic or felt more dangerous than the climb itself.
After repeatedly facing these experiences, and hearing similar frustrations from other climbers, we decided to do something about it – make detailed maps of the approaches and walk-offs of some of the U.S.'s most popular (and often confusing) climbing areas (currently we are getting ready to publish Red Rock Canyon, NV, Joshua Tree, CA, and Smith Rock, OR).
Making maps was the perfect marriage of Rick and Stefani's passion for rock climbing (and, as a married couple, each other) and Rick's 20 years of a GIS (Geographic Information System) professional.
We hope you will find this resource useful and that it will help you "Get there faster" so you can "climb-on!"
