What do you look for in a mountain climbing website

The best websites are those that are continually updated with trip reports and videos or slideshows of challenging and out of the way climbs. Good pictures are also great. Links are also worth having as they increase visitors to your site.
After you get through with browsing Personal Websites, here are a few more

Thanks Cy. My site is coming along. I'm first learning how to create mySQL tables and join them to user tables - done. Now I just need to populate my tables with data :-)

Then I need to add content, lots and lots of content. Fortunately I took over 5,000 photos this summer.

I look for pictures of llamas, then discussions of climate change, exercise regimens, and "sierra vs. sierras". After that everything is icing on the cake.

I'll yield to you on this one, but I thought Redford was prettier without a beard while Clooney is prettier with a beard.

My favourite is DIY articles. Gear is very expensive and there are a lot of creative ideas out there that can cut the cost. A great example is the article on summitport.org about how to make your own hanging stove. It's actually how i stumbled across this brilliant site.
