What is the Routes Database?
The Rockclimbing.com Routes Database is the heart of the site. It's a powerful way of capturing and describing information about places to climb. The routes database uses 7 levels to describe the climbing areas. The levels start broad with the entire Continent, narrow down to regions in a State or Province and end up with the actual route that you climb. If the country is not the US, Canada, or Australia, then you skip the State or Province level.
Here is a quick list of the levels:
- State or Province
A lot of other content on Rockclimbing.com can be associated with specific routes or areas (used broadly) in the Routes database. Photos, videos, calendar events and forum posts can all be related to a listing in the Routes db. The latest entries associated will be shown when you visit any level in the database ensuring that if you wish to read about an area or route that relevant information is pushed to your screen.
