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.

First glance info is very helpful. However for a beginner climber I wish there is more hand holding like the app for hiking “All Trail,” where gps and detail direction is available. But I am not sure the climbing culture would accept paying for additional hand holding informations.

Some comments doesn’t seem to have context or help you put things in perspective. Seems like those making the comments are hard core climbers. Taking their advice can lead to over confidence, under estimation of the route or don’t bring enough protection.

Bob Gain’s book seems to put things a little better for some one new to Joshua Tree. E.g. the approach is confusing, the climb rating is hard and the descend is insane if not outright dangerous.

The Source

The Mountain Project is an outstanding resource to the climbing community. Research and discovery are great methods to make the most of your vacation or road trip. With the Mountain Project I can find what I need to plan the best adventures or find the best crags. The map feature and ability to share info within our broader community for others is key. The Mountain Project Provides it’s community the tools they need to put together comprehensive perspectives on the whole deal. From the approach, climbing and conditions, beta all the way to other local businesses to check out after climbing is done for the day. Thanks All, I really appreciate this sites and the community working hard to keep the dream a reality.

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?
