Beyond the Guidebook: The Definitive Rock Climbing Resource.
• Find outdoor climbing areas near you, and navigate to them, using the map. This super-handy new feature is one of our personal faves.
• The much requested route finder: Easily sort routes by discipline, difficulty, star ranking and more. If a 4-star M9 is your thing, we'll help you find it.
• Search our entire database of 155,000+ climbing routes, even offline.
• Download route beta, photos, and topos state by state for offline use — because the best crags often have the worst reception.
• View a climbing area’s route stats (how many 5.11s are there?) and critical info (when is the raptor closure again?) in a single glance.
• Chat, ask questions, or put out a call for partners in our forum.
• Rate routes and photos, keep track of attempts & sends, or make a to-do list
• It's free to download and free of advertising too. Everything you need, nothing you don't.
• Terms of Service: http://www.mountainproject.com/scripts/TermsOfUse.php
This update addresses an issue a small number of users experienced where their downloaded photos were being deleted out from under them by the operating system, because they were running out of space on their device.
Ratings and Reviews
For climbers, there is really nothing else unless you want to pay the money for a guide book everywhere you go. Mountain project really has an amazing amount of climbing to look into and find for what it is.
The only reason I didn’t do a full 5 stars would be the apps user friendliness. It has been getting consistently better but in my opinion one of the biggest benefits of the app is photos and often my app glitches and won’t save the photos even after they are downloaded for offline viewing (most places I climb don’t have service).
Other than that they have made some other big improvements like book marking and i hope more people continue to use it so it can be even more useful.
Needs some fixes
Most comprehensive climbing app I’m aware of. Pretty much every climber uses it and saves carrying up a guidebook.
Needs some fixes tho, comments always dory oldest first, and offers no way to change it. Went to a local crag and ended up taking a nasty trail that has been marked as “closed” in new comments, but 12 year old comments were what showed up first and took me the wrong way.
Photos are also difficult to view, and I still can’t figure out the proper motion to open their descriptions (helpful for topo labeling). Just make it so you tap and they expand.
Would love if they could help make identifying routes in areas easier, so everyone isn’t playing the “what are you on? Okay what’s next it? Is that on MP?” game trying to figure out what they’re climbing. Maybe add a feature where users can submit a specific photo for the belay spot?
Digital guidebook in your pocket...
...or in my case, right in the stash pocket of my chalk bag. Soooooo much easier than photocopying guidebook pages, great information & input from other climbers, and recent updates have made a very nice user interface. Without doubt, one of the best (and most convenient) climbing resources out there.
So, why not 5 stars? Well, I'm a tough critic and there are occasional small glitches, but the MP crew is really good about fresh updates with bug-fixes and improvements. Keep up the great work, MP!!
At time of review: iPhone 6; iOS 10.3.3; MP app v4.0.6.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
