What That Elegant Home is All About

If you've ever wondered:

"Where can I find actionable rock climbing and mountaineering tips?", you're in the right place.

That Elegant Home started as a small collection of how-to hacks that I discovered made climbing easier and fun when I was getting started.

You've probably noticed this site is not old, because I never really considered blogging my experiences early on.

I still don't.

If enough of you like it, I'll probably put up one of those email newsletters (or something...) to interact with those of you who are into that type of thing.

How That Elegant Home Helps you Become a Better Climber... and Enjoy it

Many seasoned climbers look down on

If only it were that easy...

I learned climbing the hard way (by buying gear from amazon and getting the fuck out) without any real training, back when climbing gyms were not a thing.

And thats where That Elegant Home comes in.

This blog is where I show you the exact tips, strategies and techniques you need to become a better climber. No fluff or "expert" advice. Just insanely actionable tips that work.

About Sun Populi

My name is Sun Populi, and I am the guy behind That Elegant Home and am what most people call an avid climber.

I hit the crag a few times most weeks, in Africa primarily but am also a lonely backpacker, hiker, trekker and I always bring my camera EVERY SINGLE TIME...

...oh! and I own a Harley if you are into that sort of thing.

I do not have keep a social media presence at all--no facetweets on instawebs for me because I no longer live behind a desk.

Yeah. Am one of those people, so this is it.
