Thanks guys might go for the crag in that case.

Unless anyone wants to sponsor me.... hint hint ;-)

Yeah I have also found the guys that run the site very helpful and quick in responding to any problems or questions.

I use UKC, but then I have just moved here from the UK. They don't have a huge number of Victorian crags outside Arapiles in their database yet but it's easy to add them as you go along. Compared to other sites I've looked at I find the interface much nicer, although I can't claim to have looked very hard.

I'm only using it as a logbook, not a guidebook.

Anyway, I just had another look at thecrag.com. It's a lot faster than I remember it being in the past and has much better coverage of Australia. I've already accrued too many climbs in the UK (where the coverage is, as expected, less good than UKC) to switch, but will certainly be using it as a handy source of beta.

Besides, there's something therapeutic about adding nice, neatly organised lists of climbs to the database. Not that I'm compulsive about it or anything...

Just make sure you are entering the most recent and comprehensive data. Don't use the popular select guidebooks as they are obviously missing a lot of routes!

The proud dearies log their new routes on more than one site don't they?
Did someone mention spray?
Why do people log non-memorable routes?

I'll sponsor you a chocolate bar if you climb Ozy once, in any style that doesn't use a hammer dearie.

hi Phil and everyone,

I'm a climber/editor/developer with theCrag and I just want to add my 2cents to the discussion.

First if you have any questions or ideas about improving the site we'd love to hear them. We added a few bits and pieces to ticking and logbook but if you have any idea, (like 'steal X from site Y' :) ) then please contact us directly as we'd love to help make the site better for you:

http://www.thecrag.com/article/ContactUs

We're most active on our facebook page or via email but from time to time we'll jump onto forums like chockstone if we know about a discussion going on.

On the topic of logbook sharing, one of the things in the works is integrating with other climbing databases, so in the future we intend to be able to do things like import your tick list, eg from ACA. And just as importantly getting it back out if you want to.

On the topic of data sharing, all content contributed to theCrag is released to the public under a Creative Commons license. We're really keen to get as much high quality content as we can so if you have content available under a difference license we can work with that too, such as the UNE Outdoor club and ANU clubs contributing under specific licenses.

http://www.thecrag.com/processmap/copyright

We've got a lot of cool stuff in the pipeworks, much of it centered around our API to enable other sites, applications, mobile apps etc, to integrate with the our database.

If you are a current user and have a wish list, or if you have thought about becoming a member but didn't because of something please let us know and we'll see what we can do. After all we're basically just a bunch of climbers with day jobs scratching our own itch

... and you need to re-read my post dearie, as I was specific in NOT using a hammer, as that climb is either now free, or more oftenly done as clean aid; but then again Derek my M10 love probably has a point when he tells me that you wouldn't understand?
