Mountain Routes

Snowdon from the Glyders

When planning trips its always useful to get first hand information from people that have been there before. So to help with this we've created two resources to enable all our users to share information about mountains & routes they've climbed in the UK and beyond.

The first is the Rock Climbing & Mountaineering Route Database where you can read about rock climbs, scrambles, hill walks, winter climbs and mountaineering routes that other users have completed. You can also log your own routes and add comments to existing entries.

The second is the UK Mountain Database which contains details of all peaks in the UK over 150m, including maps, grid references and links to other Internet resources. You can also select a peak from the database and create a route in the Route Database, a great way of creating your own tick lists.
