Great addition to guide books

Not knowing what guide books to buy Rockfax seemed like a good stepping stone. The ability to download guides is a massive bonus and extremely helpfull when half way up and need some guidence. The UI could do with some improvements. UKC integration is a bit odd/confusing. Log book displays route guide description rather than your personal log, which is hidden behind the Tick icon which isn’t obvious. Personal notes should be displayed in the rout guide as well for way viewing when finding routes. Basically Fixing obvious UI/UX issues would get a 5stars.

IOS version

I've used the Rockfax app since it started and impressed with the loyalty payment I still pay. Not many companies keep the price the same for those that joined early. The app is impressive. I've used all over the UK and abroad. The topos are clear and at the usual Rockfax standard. Parking and map detail is great too. If logging a climb is important with you the ability to do that is easy. Guess only issue is adoption of this sort of system. I wouldn't normally carry my phone on a climb. So this works brilliantly for me on single pitch climbs. I still take photos of multi pitch route descriptions with a proper camera as that is nearly always with me. But that's a personal opinion.

Awesome guidebooks - now in an app

Rockfax guides are amazing, they were the first guidebook outfit (that I’m aware of) that respected people’s desire to arrive at an unfamiliar crag and quickly & easily identify lines.

This allowed me to spend my weekends climbing rather than trying to interpret long prose from uninspiring books which required I first find a route 5 meters to the left of mine, and before that, another route next to a holly bush that no longer exists.

Their photo topos and maps are excellent and the geolocate / crag finder feature get me climbing quicker. I love being able to log my climbs at the crag and sync them to the UKC database.
