Most, if not all, bouldering areas need topos far more than crags. Is there a way to have users draw up simple topos to show the lay of the land. Sailing Hawks in Durango is a perfect example of an area that has a fair bit of info, but really needs a topo to tie the boulders together. Any thoughts? Eric Whitbeck

There's no magic - do it! And upload it! Easiest way is to take photos and draw arrows/lines on them. Nick Wilder

A while ago I saw someone post a link to a site they created for creating bouldering topos. That might be worth checking out too.

That topo really ties the boulders together.

Whaaaat?
ikiboulder.com is the way to go... You can link the location to GoogleEarth, create topos, add beta, attach photos, etc.
