Welcome to the Victorian Climbing Club's Online Guidebook Resource

The idea is:

  • Guidebooks are edited online, which speeds up the process and allows input from a greater variety of people. 
  • Anybody can contribute to the information. Using wiki-style editing tools, moderators responsible for areas can manage and edit contributed information.
  • The content is available free online. In the end the information belongs to the climbing community, and the web is the best way to make that information available.
  • The printed document is generated directly from the web content, ensuring the printed guide is always up to date with the latest content.
  • Print-on-demand technology will enable you to order quality bound publications online, posted to your door. This process vastly reduces the risks associated with minimum-quantity print runs using traditional publishing.
  • Download to smartphone and tablet PCs.

This approach was pioneered by the Tasmanian climbing community (check out from which we have borrowed most of the ideas and tools.

Routes Database Imported

Just spent a few hours writing a script to pull all the existing data from the VCC Routes Database. It's not 100% clean and tidy yet, but I'll go through it as time allows and clean things up.
