Cold temps and snow scattered any crowds that might have remained on Monday. I headed up Tuesday in hopes of finally flying the formation. It was a bit windy but clear for the few days I was there. FS Road 700 closes tomorrow. Winter as come.

Very cool! Imagine a digital guidebook with that level of detail. So rad! I can picture all the red lines and numbers. The snowy drifts and arms are a nice touch.

One of my chief complaints regarding digital guides, like Mountain Project, is that the format does not seem to offer a good macro level appreciation for an area. Lots of specifics for the necessary routes. But it tends to be tough to get a good understanding of the larger thing.

If you did that for the most popular areas, you could sell the files on a website, and have a nice little business from it.

Load that file into Adobe After Effects and overlay route topos. I could see in the next 20 years we can take out our cell phones and get a holographic view of whatever we what to climb. You might as well start with what you got right now, it would take a lot of effort but it's probably the next step for looking up route beta online.

Does after effects know how to handle mesh files (.obj or .ply)?

I don't know I don't use those files.
But a quick search says yes you can.

Being a GIS guy I like and appreciate the tech being used here. One thing that will have to be worked out is locking the route to a feature. Zoom in a little on the Shelf Road model. Watch route 8 as you spin to the right and left. The route location shifts position, even to a different face. If you overlaid the topo in this current model, it would likely appear to move from one crack system or face to another depending on angle of view.

Conceptually I understand what is going on. Figure this out and you are looking at a leap in the next generation of guide. Since it is digital by nature, links to first ascent info and history would be easy, and always important and appreciated.

There will be arguments about whether this is too much info and removes "adventure", but I sure like the tech!

@nature: what kind of drone and software are you using? and what would be a mininum required to make models of this quality. super cool!

Hi Doug.

That is one very cool model.

Super Cool!

Should be an app that you download with overlays. Its the Future.

But I like books too :(.

Agreed. But it could be more than just online reference.
Arguably, the most contemporary phenomenon at the crags these days is the presence of folks milling about at the base. Phone in hand, invariably looking at the Mountain Project pages they downloaded (via the app) for offline use.

Mountain Project is often terrible at basic things though, like approaches and crag overviews. That's why I prefer guidebooks for that stuff, since the info is usually more coherent and vetted. But 3D models like this, with topo overlays, would blow the socks off both formats in some big ways.

Who knows. It could even save lives, by getting people to their routes more efficiently, with less time spent pacing at the base.

I like this. Really really cool!

Still, it makes me cringe to envision the murder of adventure potentiated by use of such gizmos out there in new routelandia.

Maybe. That or they'll walk off the edge of a cliff with their eyes glued to their phone.

digital by nature

sounds like a startup name


viewing both models in Safari and in Chrome once I rotated the model the view never updated, leaving me with a silhouette
