Using RSS feeds
Across the site, the icon indicates an RSS feed that you can subscribe to.
Subscribing to the feeds you're interested in is an easy way to keep in touch with what's going on at your favorite crags, or what your friends are climbing, without even visiting the site. The main feeds are:
Throughout the index
- Recent ascents at any crag or area

From your account page
- Your recent ascents
