The Gunks+ app provides digital guidebooks for rock climbing and bouldering.
Climbs are accessed from a list, which can be searched and filtered. Selecting a climb reveals a base photo, the route's description, and a high-resolution zoom-able aerial topo photo. The topographic photos include belays, rappelling information, variations, and new link-ups.
The app uses GPS to provide navigation and find the nearest climb. It also includes a Tick List & To-Do List with cloud backup. It also has a gallery of professional photographs and an informational kiosk for the community to share announcements.
This app was created by local climbing fixtures Christian Fracchia and Byron Igoe, and further content was contributed by Andy Salo, Char Fetterolf, Lee Hansche, Marty Molitoris, Victor Medeiros, Dana Seaton, Chris Redmond, Charlie Schreiber, Tim McGivern, John Byrnes, Melissa McNell, Ben Blackmore, Rich Shoemaker, Austin Hoyt, Conor O'Hale, Justin Sanford, Kayte Knower, Tom Chervenak, Hillary Guzik, Paul Jung, Tim Keenan, Aleks Shineleva, Ted Coffelt, Thacher Park Climber Coalition, Ryan Shipp, Seth Derr, Larry Felton, Kyle Matulevich, Mike Rawdon, Chris Lopez, and Justin Ridgely.
The Gunks+ app is an indispensable resource for both the seasoned veteran and the first time climber.
Improved handling of right-to-left, photos with multiple routes, and GPS/compass navigation.
Ratings and Reviews
Trouble Shooting Support
In a age of false promises and poor customer service amongst the electronics and computer industries and apps there are unsung heroes who back there products and trouble shoot them personally rather than direct you to a foreigner in another country on a random 1-800 number! These guys are the real deal and they move Heaven and Earth to make it right if there is a problem with any of their guide book apps! I emailed my problem and within minutes I had a email and a phone call by the developers themselves to come to my aid! They were patient and not judgmental due to my lack of computer / smart phone skills. Besides that if you are a Gunks climber you are treated to crisp route photos and accurate route descriptions. The GPS function works pretty good too! GET THESE Apps your money will be well spent!!!!!!!
A Must Have
What a great idea for an app (as a programmer, I wish I thought of it myself!).
Superb route and descent descriptions, photos, and topos. Approach trail photos and GPS are really great features. The app and guides get updated regularly with new features, routes, and any hazard or closure information. A MUST have if you climb at the Gunks or ANY crag with a guide on this app!
Buying the Gunks Apps is the best climbing investment you will ever make! The information in the app is extremely helpful and precise, constantly being updated to reflect recent closures, changes, and added routes. Never had a regret or complaint!
