Good App Ideas:

In my mind a useful phone app would display climbing routes in my near vicinity ( perhaps within a user defined radius), maybe using SummitPost, Mountain Project, etc. as the data sources, mountain weather data and forecasts for the near vicinity, and contact information (links to webs sites, phone numbers) for the relevant land management authorities (National Park Rangers, BLM Management, etc.). The app would also display any avalanche conditions for the near vicinity. The app would display a high resolution topographical map indicating my present position with overlays of existing known routes.
