It's great that you guys have implemented the sort, but I was wondering if it would be possible to modify it so you could reorder any of the climbs you have the right to modify in a particular area from the same sort screen. Right now it's more than a little painful to update the order of more than one or two routes in the same area. You have to click each route, choose edit route, choose sort route, update the order, save and navigate to the next route page. It would be nice to just go to the sort route page once, drag all the routes into their proper locations and hit save once.
Also, I have no idea how granular your permissions scheme is, but it might be worth it to allow anyone to reorder the climbs for a few months to get the bulk of the data in and correct before locking it down. I would reorder some of the routes that I didn't enter into the database, but I'm not an Administrator. My guess is relatively few of the people who have entered routes in the database will come back to update order, but it seems likely that one or two of the contributors for each area will go to the effort and be willing to update the order of their routes as well as the routes entered by others in a free moment of their time.
