Please post triplogs and photos!
It does need a design change. Originally I thought each hike page would represent a route however that would be too tedious for posting triplogs. I may be wrong since I'm not a climber but it seems they go to a section and do multiple routes frequently. Or at least more so than hikers go to a trailhead and do multiple hikes. Hikers are more likely to combine hikes into a longer hike. Not many go to Peralta and do Fremont Saddle then Cave then Bluff Springs, however they do combinations which works fine on the current triplog setup.
Anyhow pretty much all the major climbing sections in Arizona have been in the database for years listed by their parent area. For example on this page http://hikearizona.com/location_g.php?ID=1000
you can scroll down and click "Mount Lemmon" which brings up 67 sections. Then you figure each section has multiple routes.
So what we need are pages for each section. This is on the todo list and pretty easy at that once I get to it to spit out a couple hundred pages for the sections. Then the tougher part will be to incorporate another layer for routes. This way if you go to the "Wind Wall" section on "Mount Lemmon" you can include multiple routes in your triplog that it will suggest.
Probably out of the scope of anybody still reading but...
State -> Region -> (Sub Region for AZ only ->) Hike Page
State -> Area -> Section Page (which will be populated with directions and several inner changeable tabs of routes)
I've had a similar idea for hikes too. Say you post a triplog for Camelback. It would then give you several options. ie: standard up/down, shuttle or over and back with Cholla
However I'm pretty much out of programming time now so all this stuff will likely be far down the road. For the last week I've been working on a photo tag system that's turned into the most difficult programming I've ever encountered. For now simply post generic triplogs and photosets.
