What do you look for in a mountain climbing website

by mattpayne11 » Tue Nov 17, 2009 4:22 pm

I'm currently developing my first website for fun (fun is a relative term), and wanting to know what the community might be looking for in terms of features. Personally, I tend to use three or four websites for my information and would not mind having it all in one place. Thoughts? Ideas? Anyone interested in beta-testing some features?

I'm not looking to replace summitpost.org as I feel it is a great site, but would like to learn web development through contributing to something I have some passion about - climbing.

Thanks for your responses!

I enjoy informative articles and photos of mountains, ranges, and routes. I like to read about other people's impressions of climbs that I intend on doing as additional research

Thanks for the ideas. I have a couple ideas that I'm playing with already, probably nothing too exciting, but having fun with the coding, etc. You're all probably right that there's nothing I could do better than what already exists, but its a fun project none-the-less.
