The Gunks app is a complete digital guidebook rock climbing and bouldering regions throughout the Northeast.

Climbs are accessed from a list, which is searchable by name, grade, or route number. Selecting a climb reveals a base photo, the route's description, and a high-resolution zoom-able aerial topo photo. The topographic photos include belays, rappelling information, variations, and new link-ups.

The app includes GPS to find the nearest climb, a Tick List, a To-Do List, Cloud backup, and lots of filters. It also has a gallery of professional photographs and an informational kiosk for the community to share announcements.

This app was created by local climbing fixtures Christian Fracchia and Byron Igoe, and further content was contributed by Tom Chervenak, Andy Salo, Hillary Guzik, Paul Jung, Tim Keenan, Aleks Shineleva, Char Fetterolf, Ted Coffelt, Thacher Park Climber Coalition, Ryan Shipp, and Chris Lopez.

The Gunks app is an indispensable resource for both the seasoned veteran and the first time climber.

Great resource for climbing

A guy at the climbing gym introduced me to this app. It is exactly what I would want from an app to go climbing in the Gunks. Hopefully, This catches on at other climbing areas across the country.
