A perfect boulder destination in winter time when everything in Europe is frozen or wet, temperatures around 15 C with plenty of sun and almost no rain, low prices of the low season.

As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)
