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.

Ratings and Reviews
Will there be an update for long term activity tracking?
Love this app! It’s great for keeping me motivated and able to see progress over time. The height and time climbing is great to be able to see and motivates me to get a few extra routs in to push myself.
When will there be an update though? The long term tracking doesn’t change when you shift the tab between “overall - last year- last month”
Besides that it’s great, highly recommend 👌🏼
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.
Developer Response ,
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.
So far I really like this app
This might be user error, so I apologize if so.
I got really confused on tracking my bouldering today. I have had the app for a little while but actually remembered to utilize it today. I used it in such a way that now I realize was probably wrong. I’d find a route press start bouldering slide over to select the grade and begin my ascent. Once I would either succeed or fail I’d end the session and start again on the next one, I’m guessing I actually need to be pausing in between ascents but in that case can I switch grades when I switch routes?
I love keeping track of my ascents, but I worry some of them weren’t accurate like it saying I got 9ft when I’d barely get past the start of a problem. I also think that either I barely paid attention to the beginning of the app instructions/tutorial or it could have been clearer. (Again could have just been user error.)
All in all I do feel like as I get used to using this app and how to properly use it I’ll enjoy it more. I also realized it needed to be updated so I’m hoping when I go again on Wednesday it’s more accurate since I just updated it.

Hey thanks a lot for trying my app!
We've implemented iRedpoint in a way which makes tracking very easy and automatic using the build-in altimeter in the Apple Watch.
So in general, starting a new climbing session once should be enough—no need for pausing or stopping the session usually.
Sometimes the conditions are just not optimal: ACs, changing weather conditions, doors, windows, etc can all influence air pressure levels which are then detected falsely by the Apple Watch. Right now we're working on better algorithms which would try to eliminate such factors.
For that I'd love to talk to you more about how you use the app and which factors might create a bad experience in your climbing gym. Could you please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org? Then I can take a look!
Have a nice day :)
