I used to go on the site and thought it was good. I think this site has killed it off a bit thought.
SC is a bit hardcore at times for people but I wonder if it can be rejuvinated? Why is is closing?
Well, I'm not surprised, but sorry. It's felt inevitable, yet there was a time when I spent more time there than here. As an object lesson in why you shouldn't make radical changes to forum threads. However, by way of a flipside to that criticism, I was always disappointed their wiki-guides didn't take off. Better go and see if there's any I'd like to print off.
I thought it was the former then thought the latter after seeing the front page announcement. "Edits on ScottishClimbs will soon be disabled."
If they are completely shutting it down I think some move should be made to get all that info somewhere else. You can't find anything like it elsewhere and there's a lot of it.
I much prefer reading ScottishClimbs stuff since it's relevant to venues I climb at. I think as great as UKC is, Scottish climbing (what I want to read about) is such a tiny part - for example the Dumby clean up thread that someone posted really went nowhere.
I personally read ScottishClimbs a lot and would think it a shame if it were completely shut down.
YES nice one mate just copy and pasted myself some handy route maps,,, thank you
Still, seems like the kind of project someone could be taking on......
it's just going to be read only - worth noting that the contents of SC are available under a creative commons licence if you wanted to take something forward...
