Colorado Climbing Websites

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Thu Sep 23, 2010 10:50 am

In an effort to provide as much help finding peak info as possible, I'd like to create a page with some of the useful Colorado climbing sites out there. I'd like to do more than must putting them on the Links page so if you have a suggestion for a site to be on the new page, please post here and I'll start a list. Sites that have a main focus (or subset) on Colorado-climbing only, please. It will start as links, but I'd like to add a blurb and image next to each about the type of content on the site.

Initially, I have a few that I can think of:

- 14erWorld.com
- SummitPost.com
- ListsOfJohn.com (LOJ, John Kirk)
- 13ers.com
- 100Summits.com (Matt Payne's new site)
- WildSnow.com (Lou Dawson)
- TetonGravity.com (Crazy, I know, but there's a lot of good CO ski info on that site)
- MountainProject.com

14ers.com is about providing peak/climbing information and other sites have great information that could be helpful to many of us. I look forward to hearing from you...

I don't know what I'd be doing these days without the maps, lists, and beta found on Lists of John.

Right!
Sorry, I forgot LOJ. I use it a lot and think John has done a fantastic job with it.

Bill: There's also Lists of John (www.listsofjohn.com). It's more of a statistical site in my mind, but it does have the occasional trip report and map links for each peak through Google Earth.

Bill,

Are you looking primarily at sources for user-submitted content and hard data (14ers, LOJ, for example), or all-around services (learning, skills, opportunities to contribute, etc...)? I'd add Colorado Mountain Club to the list, and CFI as well for the educational opportunities they provide.

Good point, I wasn't very clear on that. We should definitely include the CMC, CFI and probably the CAIC. I don't want to make it like the bare-bones links page, but I agree that these should be on a more robust page with an overview blurb.

I'll send Andy an email to see if he's ok with it.
Thanks!

Hmm... Since we're getting into different types of sites, maybe I should simply revamp the current Links page by removing the ski area links and other unrelated stuff and provide clear categories plus more robust site descriptions. Then everything would be in one place.

I'd like to put a logo next to each link so I'll have to contact the folks running personal sites.

Thanks again!
