new features on yosemitebigwall.com
« on: December 07, 2010, 04:41:04 pm »
Yo Gang, got some fun new stuff rollin (this is fresh so if you see any bugs please post em up)

I've been kicking around the idea of how to make the 'beta' pages on these sites work better. Thought it might be more fun to
have a Summit Register for each route, somewhere you could log funny stories and maybe some beta about each climb. Each Route now
has a Summit Register tab where you log your ascent, and also contains some other fun info like the Speed Record and the number of ascents logged.

If you log an ascent in the Summit Register, it will also show on your Route Log which is a cool year-by-year list of your climbs in your profile. You can view someone's Route Log by clicking on their name(Say in a Summit Register post or if they submit a Trip Report).

Been working through some of these web kinks so haven't gotten all the topos on the site yet. The Column has all the topos.

let me know what you think.

cheers

Paul Gagner just posted up a bunch of ascents.

Solo ascent of Watkins in a day back in the 80s? Badass!

Yo gang,

I put together a Routes by Difficulty page to help sort out some of the overlap between A2-A4 routes. Still in the early stages so would love to get your feedback:

Hey guys, if you haven't seen it yet, this site is looking sweet.


Check out the 'Summit Register' feature.  I logged all my walls yesterday, it is cool to see everything I have done on one comprehensive list, dates and all...

My ascents alongside Gagner's and others. hah!  It's going to be a cool resource.

I'm working on getting a 'master' Summit Register tab for the homepage navigational bar. For now, you have to see a 'Summit' post in the 'Latest Posts' and click on it, then click on say 'Dave Allfrey' to view Dave's climbs.

really appreciate all the positive feedback on this and the new Routes by Difficulty page. Keep it comin.

cheers
