Sell on 9b your climbing topos to other world climbers !

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.

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

- write names and grades (an example…
