This is the best app to track your climbing and boulder sessions automatically. iRedpoint 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: iRedpoint will give you personalized training suggestions based on that data. How to go from V4 to V5? Or from 5.11b to 5.11c? iRedpoint 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
Heart is in the right place but needs work
The idea of automatically tracking ascents is great, and is why I gave this a try, but it works very poorly. In one session it tracked 70+ ascents, and even though I was purposely pausing the tracking while belaying it kept tracking on ascents every few minutes at random. Considering the watch knows when you’re going up and when you’re coming down it shouldn’t be too hard not to add ascents when not moving vertically… and for a climbing specific app it should take into account that at least half the time you’ll be belaying (or resting between attempts if bouldering). It is not clear whether this is accounted for in the final calories/workout tracking.
I’ll be looking forward to future versions but right now it shows more promise than ability.

Hey, thanks a lot for the feedback. I really appreciate that. I'm sorry that you had such a poor experience with our algorithm. But I have great news! Just now, with update 2.4 we've introduce an optimized algorithm specifically for top-rope climbing. Could you please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org? It would be really interesting for me to get your feedback regarding the new algorithm (should also apply to sessions that you've already recorded).
Besides optimizing the existing algorithm we're also working on a completely new version that we will introduce in the upcoming weeks.
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 email@example.com? Then I can take a look!
Have a nice day :)
It’s okay but could be so much more
I used it for the first time tonight and it worked okay. It missed a couple of climbs and it added a few for no reason. I would love to be able to log the grade of climb V5 or 5.11 depending on style and it would be nice to remove attempts from the overall number.

Hey! Good news, the new update has far more accurate tracking for ascents & adds manual grade tracking as well! I’d love if you could give it another try 😊
