Although there is some good stuff there, Mountain Project seems to have poor quality control and a lot of bad pages (at least in the areas I frequent, such as southern Utah). As in a huge percentage. There doesn't seem to be much quality control there, but I don't use it that often. From a quality standpoint, I'd hate to see SP go the way of Mountain Project.


On Mountainproject, if you see issues, how about you send an email to the area/route owner with CC to the area admin?

I'm not talking about duplicating MP, there's already enough dilution of data across so many climbing sites.
But looking at what works on other sites (any) is always an easy way to improve SP.

If I want technical rockclimbing info I'll go to MP, no second thoughts.
For peaks and alpine routes SP has a lot of detailed beta not found elsewhere.

I'd rather have 5 stars than the "Butt-hurt Report Form" ... I don't like to fill out unnecessary paperwork.

If folks are getting so disillusioned and worked up over power points, perhaps we should keep them confidential :?: Can I have my cookie now .... 8)

Exactly what I was talking about, the routes listed for Mount Baker are snow routes nothing too technical (WI2-3 is pretty moderate). Even if Baker had more technical stuff it wouldn't get as much detailed info as SP, just how to get there, important info the rest will be listed in the route descriptions and their comments.
Summitpost IS a better source for areas like Mount Baker, scrambles in the Sierras, etc.

Coming back from JT and RR, MountainProject app was tremendous help finding route info beyond the guidebook.
Sorry if this is a bit off topic but when talking about quality and improvements. SP should produce offline viewable condensed route data, including topo overview. Because of the iPhone, it should probably be an application since I don't think pdfs can be saved and viewed away from coverage.

.pdf's can certainly be saved and viewed on Android devices. I use it routinely to save copies of maps, permits, reservations, etc.

Seems like the photos that pop up on POM or Featured Photo, etc should be from members that have been active. No? Is there a way that if there has been no activity over say 6 months or a year that their material isn't "found" and posted ?
