Exploring the Memorable Places of Rock Climbing Tourists

Abstract
Rock climbers are attracted to destinations by the climbing sites found there. Given the centrality of these sites to travel behavior, the fundamental question guiding this research is “What is the nature of the relationship between rock climbers and the sites they climb?” with a focus on how places are infused with meaning. This poster uses the personal narratives of ten rock climbers from Western Canada to explore how these specific climbers are creating meaningful places through sport and travel.
