Mountain Resources is a central "Reference Library" for mountaineers and climbers. What we hope to have here, in the long term, is a comprehensive directory of clubs, travel organisations, backpacker accommodation, and other bits & pieces that are a pain in the bee-hind, to have to go and research from the thousands of available sources. Most continents and countries now have a listing: Some are complete, with URL's, or postal addresses supplied, for the following: National Mountaineering, Travel and Hostelling organisations, Weather Information, Highest peaks, etc.
Your help in keeping these pages up to date, will be most gratefully accepted! Filling in the gaps, improving on the information provided, telling us if a link is not working, or has become out of date.
