Right to Left!
Alphabetical for you old-schoolers!

Routes in Mountain Project can finally be sorted. Route and Area owners/admins can now sort routes at an area. Once sorted, you have the option to view them L to R, R to L, or alphabetically (as in the past). We store your preference.

This is a nice feature for the web site, and a HUGE feature for the mobile app we're working on. Now as I have my phone at the base of the crag, the route lists line up with reality in front of me - cool!

We have collected 70,000 routes over the last 10 years. I spent a few hours and sorted most of Boulder Canyon and Eldorado Canyon, which amounts to 2,100 routes. So at this point, the vast majority are NOT sorted. It will take time for the admins and owners to sort them.

In the mean time, here are some examples:
Cob Rock, Boulder Canyon
West Face of the Bastille, Eldo
Rincon, Eldo

I don't see a way for me to do anything on the Thailand page. Will I have this access or is it just you guys that have to do all the work? Ryan Williams

Go to an area containing routes. Hover over the edit link -> sort routes. Andy Laakmann

It seems you have to be an Admin or Submittor for that edit link to come up. For instance, I could do Green's and Owl's Cliffs, but I couldn't do any Rumney areas, only routes that I have submitted.

That's correct:
Owners of a route can sort just that route.
Owners of an area can sort all routes in the area.
Admins can sort everything that they're an admin of.

Very slick. The sorting interface is a breeze and nicely done. I had it easy for The Overlook's South/East side since the New Mexico pages have historically been done with a numerical preface on each route. With this sorting, this won't be necessary anymore. Well done guys. Jason Halladay

Well done fellas!

Request: Can you make the sorting available to all users, at least in the short term? It will make the sorting of all of the established areas much quicker. I am happy to sort some of the areas near me (LCC and BCC), but I don't have access to most of them.

Make a request, and I'll grant you short-term access. Unfortunately, we've had a handful of instances of MP users blowing up (usually from a forum "discussion") and not playing nice in the sandbox, so we can't just make it universal.

Bobby, giving you access. You can go to any area with routes, find the red "edit area" link the title, hover over it, and choose "Sort Routes".

Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Nick. One more request: could you please make AREAS sortable also? The areas in both Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood Canyons are quite naturally sorted, and it would be nice to reflect that in the database. kBobby

Nick, Andy, you guys rock! This is the best improvement I've seen and I am currently working at sorting the routes on areas I've posted. If you guys come down this way climbing, I'll definately buy you a couple beers! Bill Olszewski

So, now that this feature exists and areas are getting sorted, could you please add an option to print out routes left to right when printing a guide to an area?

Print a Mini Guide option still only does alphabetical, unless I am missing something.
