A yeoman's effort indeed,

Say...quicky quiz for the *bump*:
Who was/were the yeoman in the Shatner Star Trek???
(not sayin' I have the difinitive answer, but I think he had the hots for one of 'em)

We may have needs to refer to Ed as Capt'n...
"Admiral Hartouni" in fact, has a nicer ring.

Another way to view the index is through Google Documents.

I took the version and cut it down to the 1mb limit so it just includes the index.

Ed, if you want I can take this down. I would think that keeping a copy online would be a good back-up and a great distribution method. As well you can invite contributors and track changes.

Cheers,

just got back home from an adventure in Tuolumne Meadows...

I put the database out there for everyone and anyone to use. I consider it a community effort. I'd like to keep track of route activity independent of published guides as the guides take a long time between publications... actually that's another interesting statistic...

...there are 2237 climbs in the spreadsheet

480 climbs in Roper 1971
805 climbs in Meyers 1982
48 climbs in Harlin 1987
1181 climbs in Meyers & Reid 1987
137 climbs in Climbing 129
1536 climbs in Reid 1994
41 climbs in SuperTopo 2000
204 climbs in SuperTopo 2003

guides come out about one or two a decade, but there are hundreds of new climbs done each year. American Alpine Journal gets some of these, and some of the other rags might mention some of the newsworthy climbs... but the bulk of new climbs are unknown.

I think it would be great if they were known. It is important for the history of climbing...

edit per Clint's observation.. see, it is a community thing!

Ed, this is some serious community-minded love. Thank you for this admirable and amazing effort.

Stzzo, I was thinking along the same lines... not so tough to through this into mysql and put a simple web form on the front end. Of course, the more effort put into it the slicker it will get.

What happened to all the info I added from the Roper '64 guide? Looks like it's gone now. Irrelevant?

steelmnky, not gone, just on another version... I'll seriously review the versions and get yet another one out.. saw something today that needed to be changed...

sorry about version control... when you sent it I was thoroughly burned out on the project. I'm getting renergized now...

OK, the latest version has the steelmnky contributions:

1) Roper 64 references
2) Voge 54 references
3) Falkenstein 92 references

and I've consolidated the journal references under a single column...

Anticipated changes for the future is an expanded "journals" reference... and any new climbs that I hear about (I guess I should put in the "Eric Gabel" climbs...)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I haven't seen anything this comprehensive (relative to the climbs accomplished) since Pratt's notebook.

I haven't opened the document, but immediately I wonder about a few obscure routes I did that most people don't know about. For example, April Showers, 5.10 crack above Camp 4, or Hush,Puppy!, a 5.11 fingertip lieback along the base of Reed Pinnacle... I've got lots of them, actually... Maybe they're not important...

Pat - everything is important! I'd be happy to include any climb you have done that hasn't made it into a guide book yet.

Put a list up here, or email me a description...

Ed, this is quite amazing. Thank you!

I have one correction. Continual guidebook errors notwithstanding, we did Wings of Steel in 1982 rather than 1981. It's a small point, but you are obviously going for excellence and accuracy.

All the best!
