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.

Works For:
- Bouldering
- Top Rope
- Sport Climbing
- Trad Climbing
- Multi Rope (Alpine)
- Free Solo
- Aid Climbing
- Via Ferrata

What’s New

Version 3.7.3

This update adds a workaround for altitude tracking if you have iOS 17.4 or watchOS 10.4 or newer installed:

Unfortunately, Apple introduced a bug with the latest updates which prevents barometric data from being delivered to the device.
Instead of waiting for them to fix this, we have introduced a workaround:

You now have to grant permission to Motion & Fitness data when you start a new workout.
This is only necessary once, and afterwards you should be able to use Redpoint as usual.

I am very sorry for this unexpected behavior!

On top of that, this update fixes an issue where logging into a TheCrag account could lead to a crash when opening settings.

The app stopped tracking ascends… and back again

After the complete silence, the app was updated with a different solution to work around the bug in iOS/watchOS.
I’ve used the app today for a sport climbing session. During the first session it still did not record the ascends even if I approved the new permission. I stopped the session, killed the app, started a new session and I was happy to see it working.
I haven’t tried it yet for bouldering.

I do appreciate getting a fix for the app. I also have to admit that getting an acknowledgment when reporting the issue (and not the radio silence) would’ve made this situation much easier to deal with. I know that for a single person business this might sound like extra effort, but knowing the app is still cared for by a simple “I’m looking into this” response is reassuring.

Sorry about the issue! Apple has acknowledged they have introduced a bug regarding the barometric sensor in the latest updates of iOS 17.4 and watchOS 10.4. I have added a workaround in the latest update v3.7.3 which asks for a new permission.

Could you please try the update and see if that fixes your problem as well?

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.

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 👌🏼
