The guidebook page just hangs when I search for guides - the routes work okay though.
Guidebook page not producing selections from database.....
What is the most northerly Hard Rock route?
Astonishingly I cannot find this in the drop down list. Am I a numpty?
Sorry, should be fixed now.
The opposite for me, the guidebook page works, but the routes aren't dropping down.
fixed again. seems fixing one broke the other. both should now work!
Cheers - good quiz, and tricky - especially for those with little SW knowledge! (not a complaint FYI)
I did some proper research on this - so I want dispute some of my supposed wrong answers!
All sorted now Toby.
The route drop down section isn't working for me (on Chrome, on android phone).
Looking forward to doing the quiz once it is - looks good! Thanks UKC.
To use it, start typing in what you think the answer is. It should show suggested climbs.
Have you done this and it’s still not suggesting routes?
im sure i got 2 more right than credited with ( q40 , q17, ) wonder what i did there im sure i have the answers - maybe i left them blank ?
stupidly got 25 wrong doh
I was pretty sure I had 40 right too.
There were a couple of guidebooks I got right too which came up as wrong.
40 was one of them
Thanks, yes I've done that and it's not worked, i.e. I've typed the climb but no suggestions come up (I'm also confident that these climbs exist!!).
I had the same issue.
Don't worry it's working now.
i defo know all the guidebooks, it only marked 40 as wrong so maybe i entered it wrong, of course i cant check what it has for my entry (doesn't give a summary check page before submitting or email you) but it's only a quiz not the end of the world
Is this an "open book" quiz - still blomming hard even with Google help!
yes I took it as open book, the xmas ones etc are specified as not so.
I think this is to use up some time
I am confident I gave the right answer too, but 40 marked as wrong...
That were bloody hard that were!
will the answers be released now that week 2 is up?
