Welcome to bigwalls.net--Big Wall Climbing.

Big wall climbs are all about getting out in the wilderness and spending multiple days and nights on the largest rock faces in the world. Brought to you by John Middendorf.

Note: the original bigwalls.net website was one of the first climbing sites on the internet, created when there were only a few thousand websites on the whole internet. It was hand-coded in 1995 and an early version can be seen here : Wayback Machine Bigwalls.net website (1996). There was also a very active BigWalls Forum which is linked here on the new bigwalls forum.
