For me, the main content is the route database. There are more routes here than on other sites and you can easily add new routes (mtn project requires a moderator to do that).

The database is always (or almost always) available and you can keep track of your routes. I'm quite willing to wait on the other fixes. I appreciate your work, Jeff!

mountainproject does not require moderators to add new routes to its db. Any user can do it, as far as I know. They do, however, have moderators and admins who make sure that, say, the same route is not added into two different areas, or the same route is not entered multiple times with different spellings, or that the routes are in order as they appear at the crag. All of these are problems that the rc.com db has a lot of.

Furthermore, mountainproject has a mobile app, great search feature, and ability to draw your own topos on the site. I'm not sure what rc.com's "game plan" is, but at this point mountainproject is dominating the online routes database niche, and I don't see how rc.com can compete with it.

If anything I have found the route db here a real PITA to work with. Especially when trying to sequence routes.

Number the routes in increments of 5 to start with (#1=5, #2=10, #3= 15, etc), and you have plenty of room for additions, later, but it took a while to figure that out, and it IS a PITA, no questions there.
