This is the best app to track your climbing and boulder sessions automatically. Redpoint gives you detailed overview and feedback on your ascents.
Use your Apple Watch or iPhone as a fitness tracker for bouldering and climbing. Contribute your climbing session to closing your daily rings! Workouts are stored in HealthKit and therefore visible in the Health app and Workouts app as well.
After each session you will see detailed information about your climbs: the overall height, your heart rate, duration, maximum ascent height, ascending speed, difficulty of routes, and most importantly: Redpoint will give you personalized training suggestions based on that data. How to go from V4 to V5? Or from 5.11b to 5.11c? Redpoint creates a training plan just for you to achieve your next climbing goals.
So, how does that work?
Thanks to highly advanced machine learning we are able to classify climbing movements right on Apple Watch. In addition to that we use the built-in barometer to measure the ascended altitude. You can track the difficulty of ascended routes right from the Apple Watch.

Great app, great tracking, attentive developer
This app is great, I’ve been using it for almost a year now. It allows you to record each climbing session with metrics like total ascended feet, a log of grades/routes climbed, calories, etc. I like the recently added "long-term activity" view, where you can see how much you've climbed by month (not sure the metric used) and what grades you've been climbing overall. Though, the x- and y- scaling in these graphs needs some work, it can't be adjusted effectively and the graphs don't currently show all the information.
Some features I would really love to see added/improved to make this a killer app:
- multi-disciplinary in the same session: I always warm up before top-roping with a bouldering session, this can currently only be recorded as two seperate sessions.
- better strava syncing: I just started using this feature but it's not clear how and when sessions are synced to strava or how to improve reliability. Right now it seems like a 50/50 chance of the session will be uploaded to strava. Having this rock solid would be a huge benefit of this app for me.
- faster syncing from Apple watch to iPhone for viewing of the session after completing it
I highly recommend this app.

Hey thanks a lot for your review and the great feedback!
I am currently working on the multi-disciplinary feature (this is something I really wanted for myself for a long time: like you, I usually do some basic boulders before I start climbing top rope routes). This feature is definitely gonna come soon (version 3.2 probably!).
And you're right the sync needs some additional work! And while I cannot improve the sync speed between the watch and the phone (that‘s something that the operating provides and we have to take it as that), the Strava sync can definitely be improved in the future. The main problem here is that there are so many important things to work on Redpoint that I cannot focus on everything at the same time, as an individual developer.
But we‘re getting there. Step by step. Update by update.
Love this app!
This is a great app to capture all of your climbing data! It’s easy to use and provides you with great feedback. My only complaint is that you can’t switch between types of climbing during your session. For example, I top rope and lead climb in the same session, but have to finish a session and start a new one in order to capture the other climbs. It’d be great if I could include them all in the same session. Otherwise...a great app!! Thanks for creating it!

Hey thanks for using my app and your Great Feedback! Im working on a multi-disciplinary mode right now that would allow you to switch between climbing types while the workout is active without restarting. This should address your suggestion. Look out for the next few updates :)
Heart is in the right place but needs work
The idea of automatically tracking ascents is great, and is why I gave this a try, but it works very poorly. In one session it tracked 70+ ascents, and even though I was purposely pausing the tracking while belaying it kept tracking on ascents every few minutes at random. Considering the watch knows when you’re going up and when you’re coming down it shouldn’t be too hard not to add ascents when not moving vertically… and for a climbing specific app it should take into account that at least half the time you’ll be belaying (or resting between attempts if bouldering). It is not clear whether this is accounted for in the final calories/workout tracking.
I’ll be looking forward to future versions but right now it shows more promise than ability.

Hey, thanks a lot for the feedback. I really appreciate that. I'm sorry that you had such a poor experience with our algorithm. But I have great news! Just now, with update 2.4 we've introduce an optimized algorithm specifically for top-rope climbing. Could you please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org? It would be really interesting for me to get your feedback regarding the new algorithm (should also apply to sessions that you've already recorded).
Besides optimizing the existing algorithm we're also working on a completely new version that we will introduce in the upcoming weeks.
