Adding comments on routes

Comments on the content of the page may be added by going to the discussion tab and either editing the existing discussion or better still using the + link to the right of the edit link and add a new topic of discussion.

There's a certain way of laying out comments. You use a preceding colon to indicate that its a response to a previous comment. Two colons for a response to a response and so on.

Please sign your comments using the signature button on the toolbar for this. It is always useful to know when a comment was made

Adding a Photo Topo

Here is a link to a free topo maker just for making topos for climbing. It is so much easier than using any type of publishing software or Microsoft products like Word. If you want to see what the end product looks like check out the update for the Gap of Dunloe or Rusheen Guide on here. It produces high quality easy to understand picture topos. [1]
