Please give me my guidebook back

With the latest app update, I no longer have access to the topos and the digital download I paid for. Very disappointed and feel stolen from. Please reinstate the Yosemite Valley topos.

Hello, you can find your unlocked guidebook and crags by going to the My Content section in the app.
Unfortunately, the author of the Yosemite Valley guidebook chose to remove their content from the app. We're working on getting other content from the region in the app soon.

Stay tuned.

Has potential

I agree with others, the app is not easy to use or find routes. Very poor database. I'm living in Kenya and wasn't too surprised that it had no routes. When I checked the Red River Gorge in Kentucky, low and behold, no routes. That is crazy since it's a huge internationally known climbing spot. Well, maybe it's better elsewhere. P.S. make it easier to add your own climbing areas to build the community.

The reason we don’t allow user-generated topos is our close collaboration with guidebook authors and locals. It’s a longer process to add new areas, but it’s our ethical principle: authors are able to sell their well-developed topos, they can earn something and reinvest in maintaining the crags.

There will be an integration of, which will allow to show user-generated information and routes.

Like many said navigation of the app is extremely unintuitive. I just downloaded the app and the app tutorial was very short and didn’t cover much, but a good app shouldn’t need a tutorial.

One thing that sticks out to me is the headers of the page just kind of blend in, it took me 15 minutes to find the list of Boulders in my gym because when I clicked “topos” I did not even see there was a header that said “Boulders” that I had to switch to.

The training programs although a little quirky sometimes due to the automation are pretty awesome, it’s nice on a day I need a little more motivation to just be told what to climb and when.

I’ve been waiting for a mountain project replacement, mountain project could be soooo much better, but getting people to do the initial switch will be tough.

Good luck.

Thank you for your comment. We are working on an app redesign that should be released soon. However, we appreciate any feedback you might have. Please send us your thoughts here:
