By Stewart Green:
Climbing and a love of high places and the wild are my passions. Whether you're a beginner climber venturing out to the climbing gym for the first time or a seasoned Yosemite veteran, I hope you'll join me in this great adventure. You'll learn how to use hands and feet to scale vertical cliffs; how to climb safe so you'll head home at the end of the day; and some of the best places to go climbing in this wide wonderful world. Climbing is a way to connect with the natural world, to venture away from city and street and find a new home in the high mountains. So discover the magic of climbing with me on About.com, turn off the television, and head out to the crags. Make your life a grand adventure. And just remember: Climbing may be hard, but it's easier than growing up!
