What Is VDiff?

VDiff creates quality information for climbers.

Every article is derived from personal experience.

Approved methods are then researched from guides and instructors around the world and compared with trusted sources, such as The BMC and The UIAA.

After that, the methods are tested with modern climbing gear to make sure they're accurate and up-to-date.

Detailed illustrations are then added to accompany this quality information.

Next, feedback is reviewed from climbers who view the information, and appropriate changes are made.

After that, it is all joined together into an easy-to-understand format.

The final product is made available by donation only (this is why).

By removing the financial barrier, everyone has access to learning safe climbing techniques.

Who Is VDiff?

All VDiff illustrations, articles and e-books are made by one climber in his spare time.

As a kid, I explored derelict buildings, played with broken glass and set fire to stuff in the streets of rough Lancashire town. As an adult, I explore mountains, play with climbing gear and make camp fires. It's basically the same thing.

I created VDiff in 2015 with the goal of producing something useful for climbers. It's taken me a while so far (I have a real job too!) but if you've found VDiff useful, please consider making a small donation or sending me a nice e-mail. These things motivate me to carry on.
