SummitPost is by far the prettiest and most well organized (with room for improvement). Far better than a climbing magazine. The high quality collaborative content is superb. All the big gear companies need to wake up and start advertising here.
Why would they advertise on SP?
Some of the forums are dieing on the vine..... look at the ones that go days with out anything.
And Supertopo.... gets the old time valley locals, some of the most famous climbers in the world post up there. C mac is tough enuf to let the posters run off the idiots and it's real easy to see who the real idiots are. Sort of organic.
And it's to bad because SP is the best organized, easiest to use format and it was gaining an international flavor because of well you know, but thats gone now.
