Crag forums

Crag Chat discussions allow you to connect with other climbers either individually with your friends (via direct messages) or collectively with the climbing community (via forums at the crag level).

To stay up to date, but not be overwhelmed with other messages, notifications for discussions by default are based off your favorites crags. You can customise this in your dashboard settings.
