Climbing

The Matador community is full of climbers, and the Network has produced guides on how to improve technique, highlights of sick routes around the world, profiles of the professionals that inspire us, and coverage from competitions where the best of the best go at it.

Check out our articles on how to improve your climbing through yoga, 6 basics for bouldering, the best harnesses for women, and our interview with Chris Sharma.

The openness and passion you’ll find in climbing communities is something we respect at Matador, and mirrors what we try to bring to our own community of travelers.
