The Betaknot Backstory

We went to college, started our careers, and then a friend introduced us to this thing called climbing. We worked Monday through Friday and became weekend warriors. Our days off were full of adventure. We were introduced to wild places in our own backyard that we had never explored before. And then we moved…

We moved to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula for work. We didn’t know the area and didn’t have anyone to show us around, but we were excited to explore our new backyard. Sometimes our weekends were fun and successful. Other times they were full of road closures, poor signage, incorrect maps, and inadequate information. So we started thinking, there must be a better way…

We’ve spent countless hours developing the idea for Betaknot. It started simple, but slowly grew into what you see today. The original focus was on improving the research process for climbing related information. But now, Betaknot is a research tool that you can use for just about anything.

We hope you find Betaknot useful. If you have any ideas, we’d love to hear them. And if you’re still wondering, ‘beta’ means info in climber’s lingo, and knots tie things together.
