    OK you want to publish your route om OM, which one do you use? Trip reports or Routes, or both? They both pretty well do the same result, so why have 2?

    And routes still has this statement:-

    "Berghaus have stumped up three cracking prizes for us to give away. If you'd like to get you hands on one, all you have you to do is upload and share some routes and we'll pick a winner and two runners up every month. Include a bit of local knowledge and some helpful descriptions and you're bound to catch the judge's eye! Upload as many routes as you like, they all count. Good luck!"

    Is this now happening or not? As Jon said on the forum about 12 months ago that the prises were no longer being offered, this statement was never removed, so now with the new website update are the prizes running again? As I would have thought that with the relaunch, now would have been a good time to remove the statement. (although I think it should have been removed way back when the prizes were no longer offered)

    Because the Routes section never really took off, it was difficult to use, very difficult to find anything on, and you couldn't just write a narrative of your trip and insert photos, hence Trip Reports was born. People also link through from Trip Reports to their blog entries of trips, so we now have easy access to a huge range of people's adventures.

    Use whichever way you prefer

    I look on Routes as a technical specification and TR as a story. Pick what suits your style best
