Long awaited Western Grit as its one of my favourite areas but disappointed as it’s more expensive than I bought the book for and from sample it has inconsistencies with topos colour coding and lines. I would also suggest that route length is included in the descriptions as it’s essential for some trad routes! Well I think it is anyway. Fix it and if the price becomes reasonable then I’ll get the electronic version. Till then the book I have will suffice. Also there are some wild inconsistencies in grading of some Kalymnos routes to the official guide book that I have noticed, it may be worth revising. On a positive note it’s still a great app and well worth having but don’t try and make it too fancy. Keeping it practical might be a better bet. Thanks for all the hard work on it so far! Keep it up, I’m still a fan.

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback and positive comments. We have found a bug in the data which has meant that Western Grit had around 49 incorrect colour dots. These are being corrected and we will upload a new build. The price of the app version is £19.99 and the book is £21.95 - so it is in fact cheaper but only a bit - the book price does date back 10 years when our pricing was different. Regarding Kalymnos - our grades are based on UKClimbing logbook feedback and our own experience. We don't copy the grades from other guidebooks. Kalymnos has been notorious over the years for having some bizarre grading so I expect that these inconsistencies between different sources will continue but hopefully we will all eventually zoom in on some more reliable grades.

Great app

Roger Burrows FTW!

Was a bit unsure about this app as I love having guidebooks to physically hold, but this has certainly changed my mind. Seriously good layout and so easy to use. And it being linked up with UKC means you can log your climbs really easy too. Well worth it.



This is a great app that I've had for over 3 years.

However, be warned - maybe, consider when you "update it" off the App Store it sometimes blocks and stops the crags you've bought from displaying on your iPhone

Whenever the next update is I'm not pressing update....

Apologies for the problems you have experienced. We have had a few problems with app updates not functioning directly and needing a clean version of the app installing from the App Store (not from iTunes). You will need to Restore Purchases after doing this but you will never not have access to previously purchased packages. If you do then please send a support email from Home > Help and Support > Email Us explaining the problem and we will sort it for you. Please also note that it is essential that you do commit to app updates since failure to do so is likely to mean that the app won't function properly in the future as old versions become incompatible with the newer iOS.
