    Notes and advice from Sean McColl.

sendage.com

My good friend Jamie Chong has put together a cool new website. It’s hosted at sendage.com and as the domain suggest, it’s a climbing website. This website is similar to 8a where you can log your climbing ascents. What makes sendage unique is that it has Facebook integration as well as a much stronger and better design. Being a programmer myself, I cringe when I try to understand why 8a is layed out the way it is. All the aside, let me tell you a bit about sendage. The site’s main focus is to make send lists. You can add boulder problems, routes or multi-pitches from a huge database of climbs. So for example, lets say you’re headed down to Hueco Tanks for the Rock Rodeo. You could make a list of the sends you want to do, and then tick them off when you finally do them. Another great feature of sendage is the media coverage. You can add pictures, videos as well as links to each climb, or list to make it easier (if you want it) to find beta, or just where the climb is in general. As of right now, you need a Facebook profile to use the site, and I believe it’s going to stay that way, although who doesn’t have a Facebook profile these days… Sendage was just released a month ago, and it will probably still have some flaws. If you have suggestions, Jamie is always looking on ways to improve, so just suggest them! Either here, or on the site. Happy Sending!

    I don’t have a facebook account but would love to checkout Sendage. That sucks.

    Agree with DaveH, Facebook is a privacy nightmare. Sendage looks nice, shame about the required integration. 27crags for now I guess.

    The Facebook obligation is just to have some sort of paper trail really. It takes like 10 seconds to create a Facebook page… right?
