Apps for Mobile Devices

Open Spaces, in conjunction with iCrag, have released two of Victoria’s most popular print climbing guides as mobile apps. The iCrag format was developed to enable quality climbing guides to be presented in both Apple and Android formats. Rather than just text and static images, iCrag allows you to navigate your guide using interactive features. With iCrag on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Android phone/tablet you can quickly and easily work out what to climb and where the climb goes. And of course the advantage over the print edition is that corrections and additions can be regularly updated. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and Android phones.

Arapiles Selected Climbs
This is the Apple/Android version of the print edition using the iCrag platform. This iconic Simon Mentz / Glenn Tempest climbing guide covers over 1200 classic climbs with over 150 topos. Mt Arapiles is the best-trad climbing area in Australia. If you are an Aussie or an overseas visitor planning on a trip to Mt Arapiles, this is the app you’ll want.
