To the Admins, would it be possible to restructure the way the routes are organized? It's really hard to follow where routes are in relation to one another.

Peter- if you send me an update of what the order should be, I can re-order them for you. Sorry I'm not very familiar with the ordering of the routes on the lower wall.

Alvaro,

I think it might be helpful to remove the "no name" portions of the route names as a start. I will get back to you on the order.

The NoName numbering system was started when people first started posting stuff here, but their usefulness has worn off. I agree with getting rid of those NoName numbers, or keeping them in parentheses because there are some beta photos with the numbering system I believe. Part of the confusion may be that the Lower Wall has an upper tier, so when doing a L to R ordering, it makes it a little tricky because there are climbs on top of other climbs. The organization I've got on the page for the Lower Wall is spot on, and I climb here way more than I'd like to admit. To help clear things up, it may be good to break up the Lower Wall into the subareas listed, such as the Upper Tier. I did some editing to help with some of the routes because a few routes had changed or been inaccurately ordered. Let me know if I can help.
