Forget the notebook and leave your worksheets at home. Track your progress easier than ever before with the Ascend climbing journal.
Logging a climb is simple and intuitive. As climbers ourselves, we've cut out all the extras to make sure only the stats you want to see are front and center.
One thing we didn't strip down were Milestones, which encourage you to keep growing each time you break an old record.

- number of send climbs vs falls
- number of indoor vs outdoor climbs
- difficulty of send climbs vs falls

No Apple watch to input climbs?
App seems cool but I don't climb with my phone for obvious reasons of weight and falling on it and flexibility limitations if it's in my pocket. Make an apple watch app that just has V blank a scroll bar and 5. Blank scroll bar. And I'm happy to keep the app. For now though I can't really use it. I'll keep it on my phone for a month or two. Hope you can update it by then!
Sorry about the harsh rating. I just can't use the app so idk 2 Star for effort?
Thanks for the reply... So I updated it to 4 stars which is the current average. I still can't use the app but yah I'll wait I guess. Overall it seems like a cool app, but I don't climbing with my phone or leave it out since they crazy expensive now. Hoepfully you can get the apple watch update out asap.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback even with the harsh rating. :) I'd recommend to try keeping the app on the ground so there isn't issues with it being in your pocket, but inputing the climb info once you get back down. It can still provide some great insights with quickly added manual climbs from the phone. We think that an Apple Watch app would be great though and hope to be able to offer it in the future!
Seems really useful, but would like a watch app
This tool seems really useful, and I will totally use it more and more. I work at a rock gym, and I can see this being a valuable tool for coaching teams and adult classes. I think it’d be ever more useful with a watch companion, as climbing with a phone in your pocket can be tricky and updating the app after each climb seems like a little much. Even a small Bluetooth companion that could connect to a chalk bag or harness could make this app even more useful.
Good idea, medium execution
I love the idea of this app because I like to track my climbs for when I’m feeling like my efforts aren’t paying off...then I can see that I did a high volume of climbs or have been climbing harder, which boosts my spirits. But I’ve noticed that the climbs I log don’t always reflect properly in the insights section. For instance, this month I only climbed a 10a, 10b, and a 10c and somehow the average difficulty is reported as a 5.9. And sometimes at the end of a month, the climbs somehow get bumped over to the next month. For example—climbs that I did at the end of December seemed to show up on the January insights before it was even January yet! I thought all the discrepancies between the log and insights was possibly due to an older version, so i updated, but still have the same issue.
