Cause almost all known mountains are posted ! :D
Maybe with the crisis people also started to work more, instead of SPing at work ;)

I know some big swaths of some of the ranges in Western China are pretty much unexplored and remote. So many future range and mountain pages =P! SP documentary expedition anyone?

... also: SPing in class...

What may be "exciting" to ONE person may NOT be for someone else.

That's why NEW routes are being done on the same mountain. And, that's why a variety of opinions and experiences is the Spice of Life. :wink:

Dear fellow SPers, I don't know if I'm being off-topic or not, but I just felt I had to say something here. Something that is not only positive, but really brought tears to my eyes! I am speaking of this thread: parofes-in-hospital-and-needs-good-vibes-t64056.html
I cannot imagine there would be too many other sites on the internet where so much solidarity and good wishes from all over the world to a friend in need are shown. I find this so wonderful!! No, after reading that entire thread, I see that SummitPost is by no means dying! It is something I feel honored to be part of! :-)
Many greetings to all of you,

All it takes for this to be a great site is for others to participate. Even a little.
You can argue all day about the level of technical climbing, or any other criteria you choose to evaluate the site. But "we" are people; we're not all the same (thank God or whomever). So there is bound to be a difference in our interests, experiences, etc. And that is what makes this such a great site: a diversity of experience but a common love of mountains.

So people, participate! Maybe if you do, perhaps others will follow (we all have a little lemming in us).

You can start by clicking the Thanks button ;-)

Hey Idahoans ... another reason why SP is so great ... http://www.summitpost.org/the-splattski/553307

Steve seems to be putting his own unique twist on the "splatt-shots" these days. By golly, can almost count the hairs on his god-damned beard ... AMAZING ........ and gotta love his "Oregon Ducks" cap --- yeah.
