Ratings and Reviews

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 ad campaign is sick, the app is sickening


Difficult to use and has probably less than 5% of the climbs mountain project has. And that's being generous. Maybe you guys should focus more on you product and less on your ad campaign. I would be embarrassed to have released an app with such a small amount of areas. You guys have a good idea, just poorly executed

This app looks cool...


But that's about it. It's difficult to navigate to find specific areas and it is far from comprehensive. To top it off, you have to pay to use the topos. I don't mind paying, but the app was advertised misleadingly.

I thought I'd check it out, but I will no doubt be sticking to Mountain Project. It may not look as nice, but it covers a much broader scope and is easier to use.
