write for the vertical adventurer!

Would you like to write for The Vertical Adventurer website with a guest post?


The Vertical Adventurer is my personal blog that is quickly growing and helping many people around the world make changes in their life and seek outdoor adventures. It is focused primarily on hiking, climbing and canyoning, but will eventually include other activities.


I'll be honest and say that I am quite picky with any guest post contributions for my website and tend not to do them very often, preferring most of the content to be my own.

Guest Post Guidelines


If you would like to see if a guest post is possible, please have a read of the guidelines below.


Article Quality: A minimum of 1000 words is required, but you can make it as long as you like.
