Where do climbers scramble on the 'Net?

There's a Web site called www.top100climbing.com that ranks the top 100 climbing sites based on how many times they are referred to on other sites. The top one? I guarantee you've never heard of it. It's vuelta.de, a German site focused on "Aktivreisen, Wanderreisen, Radreisen, Kulturreisen in Spanien" which, and I'm going by phonetics here, I assume is about wandering, biking and enjoying the culture of Spain.

That beat out classic sites, such as www.climbing.com, www.rockclimbing.com and local favorites like www.summitpost.org and www.14ers.com .

Hmmm, I think someone might be manipulating the rankings.
